Please join the Belfer Center Cyber Project with predoctoral fellow Amy Ertan as she presents her published co-authored work alongside Maggie Gray, Artificial Intelligence and Autonomy in the Military: An Overview of NATO Member States’ Strategies and Deployment with the NATO Cooperative Cyber Defence Centre of Excellence (NATO CCDCOE) as part of a two-part report series.
What does artificial intelligence (AI) mean for future warfare? From the DoD’s Strategy to NATO’s Emerging and Disruptive Technologies Roadmap, recent years have seen an intense evolution in understanding, research, and rapid deployment of AI capabilities within the military sphere. This talk focuses first on how the North Atlantic Trade Organisation (NATO) has approached military AI innovation. The presentation will then explore national approaches to AI, drawing on Amy Ertan's doctoral research in which current and former military, technical and policy-focused experts were interviewed on themes including technical security challenges, hype, private-sector military AI innovation, and state perceptions on military "AI arms race" dynamics.
