    The Pentagon is reportedly experimenting with AI and other cutting edge technology in the hope of being able to ‘predict the future’.

    Turns out you don’t need a Tardis anymore to see into the future, as the US has come up with the possible technological solution to actually be able to ‘see days in advance’, reports suggest.

    The Pentagon, headquarter building of the United States Department of Defence, is said to have conducted a series of tests in an attempt to ‘achieve information dominance’ and ‘decision-making superiority’.

    In the tests, the U.S. Northern Command, (USNORTHCOMM) used artificial intelligence, global sensor networks and cloud computing resources with the aim of one day being able to ‘predict the future’.

    The tests are known as Global Information Dominance Experiments (GIDE) and according to USNORTHCOM, the AI and other technology used in the experiments could offer the Pentagon a strong ‘ability to see days in advance’.

    This means the Pentagon could be able to actually predict the future with some reliability, through the evaluation of patterns and irregularities in large data sets.

    That is interesting but it is just a prediction, not "seeing" the future, in other words a good estimate with a good probability to happen. Interesting anyway.

    I guess yes, only prediction, meaning certain probability of things happening.

    Only in theaters for now?

    Try Prime Video or better yet Disney Plus, as it is a Disney movie after all. Plus it is donkey years old (2015).
