Putin wouldn’t have invaded Ukraine if he had AI: Palmer Luckey

AI has been compared to the next atomic bomb and has sparked fears about the future of warfare.

But Anduril founder Palmer Luckey believes the technology will improve war for all.

“AI is going to be a tool to put all the cards on the table for everyone,” Luckey told Bloomberg’s Emily Chang on the latest episode of “The Circuit.”

“I hope you have dictators who make better decisions because even they have better information thanks to AI.”

Citing the example of Vladimir Putin’s 2022 invasion of Ukraine, Luckey said that if the Russian leader had used AI to better understand what was going to happen, he would not have launched his attack at this time. that moment.

“I don’t think he would have launched this invasion of Ukraine if he understood what was actually going to happen,” Luckey said.

“Remember, they thought this was like a three-day special operation that they were going to embark on. It was going to end very, very quickly.

“If he had a better understanding of what he had and what they had, I think he probably wouldn’t have played this role.”

Luckey’s defense technology startup Anduril has an AI-based solution to solve just these kinds of problems for the U.S. military and its allies.

In addition to a range of flashy drones and autonomous vehicles, the basis of Anduril is its proprietary AI-powered software system, named Lattice.

Lattice acts as a command center allowing a human operator to control a network of autonomous devices capable of placing themselves in the line of danger and carrying out surveillance or other missions.

Anduril’s Long Range Sentry Tower uses AI to provide autonomous surveillance.


It is with this type of software, rather than heavy military machinery, that Anduril’s founder continues to believe the United States has an advantage over other countries, he told Chang.

“Using software to make decisions twice as fast, or even ten times as fast, is a capability that I don’t think our adversaries are about to copy,” Luckey said.

Anduril is quickly establishing itself as one of the leading companies supplying the US military with futuristic technologies.

In April, the Air Force selected the Los Angeles-based startup over traditional companies Boeing, Lockheed Martin and Northrup Grumman for a major modernization contract.
