SAE Media Group reports: Branches of the US Army will be sharing insight into their developments in human-machine teaming at the Military Robotics and Autonomous Systems (MRAS) USA Conference, in Arlington, VA, this June.

Arlington VA, VA, May 25, 2022 --( Inside the US Army's plan for autonomous weapons is the idea to leverage and integrate the best attributes of both human cognition and machine-enabled autonomy.

“The guidance that we've received from our most senior leaders is to use capabilities like artificial intelligence, or advanced robotics, to augment soldiers, not necessarily to replace them,” Maj. Gen. John Rafferty, director of Army Futures Command’s Long Range Precision Fires Cross-Functional Team, commented in an interview. *

The upcoming Military Robotics and Autonomous USA Conference, taking place in Arlington, VA, USA, on June 20-21, 2022, will feature in-depth briefings on how human-machine teaming in the future, will enhance the operational and institutional effectiveness of the US Army, international allies, and its partners.
