Did you hear that the U.S. Army has built a supercomputer, complete with a liquid cooling system and fire suppression system that’s small enough to fit inside a shipping container?

The U.S. Army has built a six petaflop — $12 million supercomputer, complete with a liquid cooling system and fire suppression system — that’s small enough to fit inside a shipping container. According to the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, it could give soldiers a tactical edge in combat in remote locations.

No.
Obviously they want it to analyze military operations. The size, mobility, the fire control, etc. more than suggest that.
I think they'll have to scale it down more and lower it's energy consumption before it ships out for a war zone, though.
Hopefully when it does, they won't allow it to make any big decisions - Like where and when to drop bombs.
I don't want AI making those decisions.
