It happens that a journalist from The Economist, named Shashank Joshi, public in Twitter various fragments of a book titled Four battlefields: power in the age of artificial intelligence, curiously the book recounts what happened when the army high command asked a group of eight marines to try to outwit a robot equipped with a modern AI-based people detection system.
As a result of this, the marines tried to evade the surveillance of the AI with untraditional methods, one of the marines approached slowly cartwheeling on the ground, another disguised himself as a tree and gradually approached. The most original was a marine who got into a carton box in the purest style Metal Gear Solidmaking the AI of the military robot could not detect it.
All the marines managed to outwit the military robot, but the innovation of the one who used a video game tactic to achieve his goal, he obviously takes the prize for cunning, as who would have thought that something so peculiar would outperform an AI-powered military robot.
