Artificial intelligence will soon assist the Indian Army in analyzing threats during operations, particularly in sensitive regions like Jammu and Kashmir. The army will be provided with AI-based threat assessment software by the ministry of defense, which will be able to connect to national databases like MoRTH and UIDAI.
This software will be used to follow vehicular travel, monitor the individual online presence, including on social media platforms, and derive links and patterns, according to an official. The army will be able to track and predict occurrences with the help of the software, which was purchased since operations demand a thorough threat assessment.
Only restricted information is now available in the form of registers, both at the company operating base (COB) level and with other headquarters; details of threat assessments are not yet available to security forces or law enforcement authorities.
According to official correspondence, incidents cannot be tracked or anticipated because no methodologies are available with SF for past correlation of incidents, and the data is either non-existent or is maintained in legacy formats (papers and registers).
The answer to all this is a networked AI-based technology that enables data storage and analysis to track and forecast occurrences. In order to track the movement of vehicles and monitor people’s online activity, including on social media platforms, details can be linked to national databases like UIDAI and MoRTH.
Data from other agencies can be imported into the software. With real-time data visibility at all outstations, the central compilation of information from multiple patrols will be possible.
