GIDE 3/ADE 5: U.S. Air Force Air Battle Manager Addreses The Global Information Dominance Experiment

The Global Information Dominance Experiment TYNDALL AFB, FL, UNITED STATES 07.16.2021 New York Air National Guard Capt. Eric Schenck, Senior Floor Director, gives an interview during the Global Information Dominance Experiment 3 in conjunction with the Architecture Demonstration and Evaluation 5 event at the 601st Air Operation Center on Tyndall Air Force Base, Fla, July 16, 2021. North American Aerospace Defense Command and U.S. Northern Command, NORAD and USNORTHCOM, in partnership with all 11 Combatant Commands, led the third in a series of Global Information Dominance Experiments designed to rapidly develop the capabilities required to increase deterrence options in competition and crisis through a data-centric software-based approach. GIDE events combine people and technology to innovate and accelerate system development for domain awareness, information dominance, decisional superiority, and global integration. The GIDE 3 experiment was executed in conjunction with the Department of the Air Force’s Chief Architect Office (DAF CAO) as part of their fifth Architecture Demonstration and Evaluation event (ADE 5), and the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center.

GIDE System To Predict Future

The United States Northern Command (USNORTHCOM) recently conducted a series of tests known as Global Information Mastery Experiments, or GIDE, in an attempt to predict future events and thus “achieve information mastery” and “superiority in information.

The Pentagon hasn’t released any specific details on what exactly GIDE entails, but it certainly doesn’t include precognitive beings bathing in creepy liquids like in the movie Minority Report. Rather, the idea seems to be to combine data with machine learning and other forms of artificial intelligence to gain enough informational advantage.

“What we’ve seen is the ability to go much further, from being reactive to being really proactive,” said Gen. Glen D. VanHerck, commander of NORAD and USNORTHCOM. “And I’m not talking about minutes or hours, I’m talking about days.”

“For this, we have used sensors from around the world, not just military sensors, but also commercially available information,” he added. “So, by going through an artificial intelligence (AI) with machine learning, we can evaluate, for example, the average number of cars in a parking lot that may be there in a specific location for a competitor or a threat.”

If the AI ​​detects certain changes of interest in that parking lot, it could send an alert suggesting that someone closely observe satellite imagery of the area for suspicious activity.

Tom Cruise In The Movie The Minority Report
Tom Cruise showed us the future of the present 20 years ago in ‘Minority Report’.
This 2002 film is based on a 1956 short story by Philip K. Dick entitled ‘The Minority Report’, where mutants capable of predicting the future are used by the police to predict crime and fight murders before they occur.

“The system gets information from multiple sources and puts it all on one screen so that we can make more effective decisions, and then the system itself helps with that decision-making by providing recommendations and information to support that,” said the captain. of the New York Air National Guard, Eric Schenck, in a recorded interview last month.

VanHerck emphasized that the system does not involve new technology per se, but rather a new approach to using technology to process large amounts of information.

“The data already exists,” VanHerck said. “What we are doing is making that data available and shared in a cloud where machine learning and AI analyze it. And they process them very quickly and provide them to the decision-makers. “

The general also adds that the result may be knowing that something is going to happen days in advance.

“Today, we end up in a reactive environment because we are late with data and information. So all too often we end up reacting to a competitor’s action, ”he said. “And in this case, it actually allows us to create deterrence, which creates stability by being aware of what might happen before it happens.”

Gen. Glen D. VanHerck Speaking About GIDE
Gen. Glen D. VanHerck speaks during a press conference on Global Information Dominance Experiment (GIDE) 3, at the Pentagon, Washington, DC, on July 28, 2021.

As for concerns that this scenario may start to look a little less precocious and a little more Skynet, VanHerck insisted on reiterating that “humans STILL make all the decisions.”

“We do not have machines that make decisions,” he stressed. “Certainly, machines can offer options.”

That’s good news for the most paranoid among us, as long as the machines don’t begin to manipulate those options to subtly direct human decision-makers toward the service of our new robot overlords.
