„This comprehensive book gives an overview of how cognitive systems and artificial intelligence (AI) can be used in electronic warfare (EW). In electronic warfare (EW), the human mind is increasingly becoming the battlefield. The aim is to change not only what people think, but how they think and act. The main task of cognitve electronic warfare will be the shaping and influencing of individual and group beliefs and behaviours to favour one‘s tactical or strategic objectives. To protect the society and democratic institutions against this electronic infiltration of group beliefs and behaviours has to be one of the main tasks of any future democratic government." Kurt Nemec
