Military Applications of AI and the Implications for Nuclear Stability

Invitation Only

Militaries are increasingly interested in leveraging artificial intelligence to enhance systems for command and control, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance. Such applications could affect nuclear deterrence relationships and international security dynamics. Ahead of that potential future, it will be important for stakeholders to develop understanding of challenges that military AI applications could pose, including any effects on arms race dynamics, crisis stability, escalation control, and operational safety.

This policy salon dinner will provide space for participants to explore such challenges. The goal is for the discussion to draw out near-term policy questions on how military applications of AI could affect nuclear stability. It will also help participants identify research gaps and potential collaborators for future projects on the topic.
