The U.S. military must regain its technological edge over possible foes if it hopes to prevent such a war.
Meanwhile, AI will drastically change the analytical tools that help combatants make sense of the battlefield. Additionally, AI will give militaries the ability to look for patterns that are indistinguishable from humans alone, providing new perspectives and providing early warnings about the intentions and behaviors of enemies. After the Cold War, the idea that economic entanglements prevent wars resurfaced, but it is now completely untrue. Any worries about economic development that Russia may have had have been surpassed by its territorial ambitions. Similar inclinations are being shown by China, which is insistent on reunifying with Taiwan.
