Boeing Australia teams with DCRC for AI
Boeing has announced that it will partner with Australia’s Trusted Autonomous Systems Defence Cooperative Research Centre (DCRC) to develop advanced artificial intelligence (AI) technologies to create smarter unmanned systems for global forces.
Boeing Australia’s first project with the DCRC will examine an unmanned system’s route planning, location, and identification of objects and the platform’s subsequent behavioural response.
The hope is that embedding machine learning techniques on-board will help unmanned systems better understand and react to threat environments.
The DCRC for Trusted Autonomous supports the rapid creation and transition of industry-led trustworthy smart-machine technologies for the Australian Defence Force.
Boeing will work with Australian university partners and Brisbane-based supplier RF Designs to flight-test and evaluate the capability with autonomous high performance jets.
