Innovative development in the human-machine teaming would enhance the abilities of the US Armed Forces: Project Maven focuses on helping U.S. Special Operations Command (SOCOM) intelligence analysts identify objects in video from small ScanEagle UAVs.
"We hope will become a lot of time back over time, rather than just having to stay glued to the video screen,” said Air Force Lt. Gen. John N.T. “Jack” Shanahan, director for defense intelligence for warfighter support. “We are setting the stage for a future of human-machine teaming”.
Shanahan believes the concept will revolutionize the way the military fights: “This is not machines taking over,” he said. “This is not a technological solution to a technological problem. It’s an operational solution to an operational problem.”
