Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Weapons Systems: Technology, Warfare, and Our Most Destructive Machines

Workshop Is Invitation Only

The Stanley Center, in partnership with The Origins Project at Arizona State University and the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, will co-host a workshop to consider the risks and opportunities autonomous systems pose for international security. The workshop will assess the effects of these advances across a spectrum of military applications, including intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR), defenses, strike platforms, and nuclear weapons strategy. Participants will consider how artificial intelligence will affect international security, and how to develop responsive governance solutions that help manage this uncertain future. The workshop includes a public event entitled “An Origins Project Dialogue: Stepping Back from the Brink–A Discussion of National Security,” featuring William J. Perry, former US Secretary of Defense.
