Anne Hoey and John Benton discuss artificial intelligence in the military

Over fifty years ago, scientists began to discuss the possibility of designing a pseudo brain that worked at the capacity of a human brain, and the field of artificial intelligence (AI) was born. Although they brutally underestimated the complexities associated with such a task, they were right about the array of conceivable uses—especially by the United States military. Two scientists who partook in the golden era of AI research  in the 1980s, Anne Hoey and John Benton, formerly of the Center for Artificial Intelligence (CAI) in the United States Army Topographic Engineering Center (TEC), have agreed to share top secret information with Berkeley Science Review.
