For the past few years, I’ve kept current on developments in machine learning (ML) through courses and interest groups. One thing I’ve noticed is that a lot of success stories were recycled from the business world. Although there are many potential military applications, especially for intelligence, these generally can’t be shared publicly due to security. Yet, there are open source datasets that can easily be repurposed for high-payoff military applications. I thought it might be useful to showcase how quickly one can develop a prototype for a problem statement of interest to the military using an open source dataset.
