None of them, however, have fully achieved their intended outcomes as their ambitious premises have exceeded available technologies, budgetary resources, and operational capabilities of a given era. This paper argues that a new ‘artificial intelligence-driven RMA’ wave differs in the political, strategic, technological, and operational diffusion paths and patterns. While the AI-RMA may affect select countries and regions disproportionately, its technological advances coupled with an ongoing strategic competition is sufficiently broad to stipulate significant military changes across geopolitical lines.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/154623||ISSN:||0140-2390||DOI:||10.1080/01402390.2020.1848818||Rights:||© 2020 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
