US Army expands AI capabilities with help from Palantir
The U.S. Army will expand its AI capabilities as it signed a contract extension with Palantir. The contract is for two years and valued at $99.9 million.
The contract was signed specifically on behalf of the U.S. Army Research Laboratory. The Army Research Laboratory has been working with Palantir since 2018 to integrate, manage and deploy relevant data and AI models for use in training the armed forces, COCOMs and special operations forces.
Palantir -representatives said the contract will enable the U.S. Army to stay ahead in battlefield innovation. Artificial intelligence is playing an increasingly important role in combat for the U.S. Army. Last year, Army officials said the U.S. used the technology for the first time ever in a real-time combat situation to pursue a high-priority objective.
