Iran’s Brig.-Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ Aerospace Force, has claimed that Iran has added artificial-intelligence capabilities to its technological arsenal.
Iran has already expanded its reach in space, in missiles, in drones and in cyber. Now it claims to have done so in AI.
Hajizadeh said in a speech this week, “We have achieved good successes in the fields of university and defense cooperation, and we can safely say that if we have gone from being an importer of barbed wire to an exporter of technology, by crossing the borders of knowledge we have defeated the enemy at a distance of more than 1,000 kilometers with artificial intelligence.”
The new claim didn’t specify exactly what “artificial intelligence” had been used or how it had been used to “defeat” an enemy.
