TheMilitary & Digital Media: Comrades in Arms
Since the advent of the vaunted “military industrial complex,” emerging media technologies for training, tracking, communications, public safety and combat have been integrated into the U.S. military’s strategy, tactics and budget. Indeed, many consumer applications we now take for granted like VR--even the internet itself-- were developed with Department of Defense dollars.
VR, AR, AI, video-enabled drones and all manner of digital media systems and devices are deployed in the name of defense, the cause of offense, and, depending on circumstances, control or protection of the U.S. citizenry.
Video is critical to these basic applications and beyond, including “deep fakes” in espionage, or offshoots for science, such as NASA probes. And the numbers are huge. Globally, military spending has already increased from $586 billion in 2015 to $716 billion in 2019. Come hear how working with the military works and the investment (and valuation) opportunities in this sector.
