Editorial Introduction to the Special Articles on Applying Deep Learning to Security II
Deep Models, Machine Learning,
and Artificial Intelligence
Applications in National and
International Security — Part Two
Ying Zhao, Arjuna Flenner
n The spring 2019 issue of AI Magazine
featured three articles on deep models,
machine learning, and AI applications
in national and international security.
In this issue, we continue the series with
three additional articles, which, like the
first three, examine many of the pressing
issues involved in applying deep learning
to the domain of security.
Recent advances in artificial intelligence enable new technologies to assist modern warfighters by auto- maticallyanalyzingbigdataattimescalesmuchfaster
than a human can achieve. In particular, deep learning is a
core technology in the AI revolution. The deep learning
revolution began by demonstrating that not only can machines classify much more quickly than humans but they can
classify more accurately as well. These technologies have
revolutionized many commercial applications, but they are
not currently designed to solve security problems.
