AI Expo Showcases Cutting-Edge Military Technology

The second annual AI Expo for National Competitiveness in Washington featured software companies Palantir and Govini demonstrating their high-tech military weapon systems to the nation’s top brass.

Fox News Digital got an exclusive look at the cutting-edge technology and interviewed Palantir CEO Alex Karp. His software is currently deployed in Ukraine and the Middle East.

Karp emphasized the importance of the U.S. winning the AI race against adversaries like Russia and China. “The way to prevent a war with China is to ramp up not just Palantir, but defense tech startups that produce software-defining weapons systems that scare the living F out of our adversaries,” he said.

Despite fears of AI leading to killer robots, Karp believes the U.S. must maintain its advantage in artificial intelligence. “Our adversaries have a long tradition of being not interested in the rule of law, not interested in fairness, not interested in human rights and on the battlefield. It really is going to be us or them,” he explained.

Former intelligence analyst Shannon Clark demonstrated how Palantir’s technology could help shorten wars and lead to different outcomes. “It’s about speed. What was able to be done in days or weeks is now done in minutes,” Clark said.

Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. C.Q. Brown Jr. attended the summit and stressed the importance of staying ahead of adversaries in AI. “I don’t play for second place. If I’m in, I’m putting my best foot forward to make sure we are going to win,” Brown said.

A bipartisan group of senators, led by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., introduced a report urging Congress to invest $32 billion over the next three years in AI research, testing standards and boosting U.S. investment.
