Abstract: Too much reliance is being laid on applications of AI in finding solution to various problems being faced by human kinds. The recent outbreak of COVID 19 is comparable to outbreak of any other havoc on the mankind including war, due to similar characteristics of three Vs i.e. Velocity; Volume and Veracity. The objective of study is to draw out lessons from AI applications and success achieved during pandemic spread for the application of AI in future wars. The study has been done in two parts first part consist of descriptive analysis of performance of AI in predicting, diagnosing and finding the resolution to current pandemic. The second part consists of working out the way forward for application of AI during future warfare. The methodology used for working out expected Ai performance during future warfare has been survey and interaction with the experts in the field. The findings of the study have been that AI has been quite a success story during prediction and diagnosis stage of Pandemic but the actual performance in finding solution to the problem has been questionable. As a result the countries world over have suffered huge losses and had to resort to various preventions measures. The novelty of the study is derived from the fact that various study in the AI field have been specific to a particular field and no work was done on learning the lessons from one domain to its application to other field of similar nature. The question of “How much reliance should be laid upon AI during a future war.” has largely remained unanswered. With reference to ethical and legal issues related to AI in employment of Killer Robots the study recommends future course of action. We need to ensure that no rogue application of AI takes place in a sector where the very existence of humanity is at stake.
