AUSA President Gen. Carter Ham (USA, Ret.) remarks on the international turnout at the organization’s annual expo, and how the technologies presented there show what the future of the Army could look like.


The Association of the U.S. Army’s annual exhibition wrapped on Wednesday. Cutting edge technology, safer vehicles and more lethal weapons were showcased at the event. Francis Rose interviewed AUSA President Gen. Carter Ham (USA, Ret.) at the event and he remarked on some of the technology he saw while on the show floor.   “The reality is that autonomous systems and artificial intelligence are having and will continue to have a significant effect on the modernization of the forces,” Ham said. “I think what I sense that the Army and all of the services are grappling with is the ethical component of that. How do you make sure that the discernment that the decision to apply lethal force is being made with a human in the loop? I think that’s one of the great challenges that lies ahead.”
