Artificial intelligence (AI) is known to have various applications. The AI is still an evolving technology, and the scope for AI is varied. There are various viewpoints about the exact applicability of AI. No final verdict has yet been announced whether AI is a saviour or destroyer. Issues of ethics do get raised in regard to the applicability of AI. However, globally it has been observed that the armed forces have already started inducting this technology somewhat selectively in their overall defence architecture.
