Artificial intelligence gets real

Technology being developed in a nondescript office building in Reston could change how Army soldiers train for and operate in combat thousands of miles away.

The Army’s Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) runs on a pair of Microsoft goggles and links to a microsized drone that flies autonomously and collects video analyzed in real time by artificial intelligence algorithms trained to identify threats, like an enemy combatant with an assault rifle coming around a corner, or a vehicle of interest. Detections are sent to a heads-up display within the goggles and are shared across a squad.
