The notion of using A.I. systems to monitor, analyze, predict and control troops may seem like science fiction, but modern A.I. is used in all facets of modern life, from consumer parcel delivery to online search engines.

If a FedEx computer makes a mistake, a parcel might be delivered late or to the wrong address.
