Defence IQ: What role do you see AI and machine learning play in enhancing cyber security in the Armed Forces?
Brigadier General Buckner: I don’t know that we have fundamentally realised just how much these emerging technologies will change the way we fight and the nature of conflict; this is why I approach it more broadly than just the cybersecurity aspect. I certainly think we are already seeing ways that these can help inform our network defenders and architects, coupled with operating and maintaining our networks.
The idea of autonomous vehicles, unmanned aerial vehicles, ISR, and getting at the ubiquitous nature of data collection and making that into something meaningful is extraordinarily important. We are also looking at ways that AI and machine learning can really improve…
Governments and armed forces around the world are investing massively in AI, machine learning and advanced analytics to not only accelerate decision-making on the battlefield but streamline the defence enterprise’s internal processes and allow for a more agile procurement cycle.

Airbus Defence and Space is no stranger to digital transformation, having implemented such a programme last September. As the lead sponsor of the upcoming Big Data for Defence conference, the company is ideal to discuss what the digital age means for defence industry. In this exclusive transcript of Defence IQ's conversation with Philippe Pham, Head of Data Analytics & Applications (TZA) at the Airbus Defence and Space’s Digital Transformation Office (DTO), learn more about their short-term and long-term goals, the challenges they have overcome throughout this journey, and how this programme helps enhancing their relationship with the military.
The potential applications of big data, AI and other emerging technologies in the defence sector are vast. There is an increased focus on these technologies by nations from across the world, which is stressing the importance of developing, implementing and applying them in their Armed Forces.
Ahead of this year’s Big Data for Defence Conference, Defence IQ compiled a big data for defence trends report, outlining current programmes and ongoing requirements.

Big data is a key word currently in the defence sector. Whether in logistics, warfighting or within the different processes in between, the potential applications and its potential is vast. Ahead of the inaugural Big Data for Defence summit, Defence IQ had the privilege to have five minutes with General Sir Gordon Messenger KCB DSO* OBE ADC, a recognised advocate for the implementation of technology in the defence sector and keynote speaker at the event. In this exclusive transcript of our discussion, he explains why he chose to participate in the conference and why you should do so too.
Artificial Intelligence offers a vast potential to the defence sector and could possibly re-write the way militaries operate entirely in all domains, from logistics to the operational theatre.
Ahead of the Big Data Analytics for Defence summit, Defence IQ had the opportunity to gain expert insight from Ross Tsagalidis, Department of Computer and Systems Sciences and Advisor Cybersecurity to the Swedish Armed Forces and speaker at the event, on the potential of AI in the military of the future.
