The Pentagon is looking into how artificial intelligence can help construct more digitally secure vehicles, weapons systems, and other network-connected platforms much faster than it takes today, Nextgov has reported.

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) insists the use of artificial intelligence could not only significantly speed up these vital tasks, but could be key to discovering more effective designs.

The agency last week launched a research initiative that will concentrate on constructing AI-powered tools that help the Pentagon quickly assess different blueprints for cyber physical systems.

DARPA is convinced this could "be a game changer, and may result in a new generation of unexpected, counterintuitive design solutions."

This is because, while today the Pentagon must constantly deal with vulnerabilities as they come up, the use of AI would let officials begin building cyber physical systems with a blueprint that has already been extensively tested and optimized.

"We expect order of magnitude improvement in design productivity, but equally important, the appearance of surprises, in the discovery of unconventional but highly performant designs," officials said.

DARPA intends to divide the program into three tracks, with teams operating together to design the AI co-designer itself, develop a mechanism for humans to interact with the system, and construct a training regimen to teach the AI to learn from both the successes and failures of previous system design.
