I remember reading somewhere that AI companies were eager partners with the DOD & DARPA but Google & Apple started buying them really just to burn off cash & these giants for PR reasons are not eager to work with the military.
The Navy have been working on their UCASS programmes (they programme changes names) for over 15 years and has yielded prototypes.
I think there will always be a need for a pilot up there.
