artificial intelligence

Director of National Intelligence – and former Indiana Senator – Dan Coats says the nation’s intelligence apparatus isn’t harmed by a lack of information, but by a lack of ways to process it efficiently.

That was Coats’ message Tuesday during a speech at a Purdue University symposium on using artificial intelligence for military purposes.

Coats didn’t talk much about AI, but did say he worries about a perversion of what he calls the “liberal order” of the world.

While Siri and Alexa can tell jokes, they don’t know why humans find things funny. But a Purdue University scientist hopes solving that problem will open new doors for device creators.
