The US Military Secretly Built An Artificial Brain Called The Sentient

Since 2010, various US agencies have been developing a top-secret artificial intelligence system that they called Sentient, a term that translates as "conscious" or "endowed with senses." The documents confidential and classified recently published by The Verge describes the Program Sentient National Reconnaissance Office (NRO) as an intelligence system fully integrated system that can coordinate satellite positions, and will soon be used to manage operations in the battlefield during military clashes.
