Artificial Intelligence and International Affairs: Disruption Anticipated
Missy Cummings (co-author)
Discussions about the future of Artificial Intelligence (AI), whether philosophical or popular, tend to view artificial intelligence as distinct from, and potentially as a threat to, human intelligence. What has been less examined are the potential applications for AI in assisting the human decisionmaking process on international financial, political, and military issues. Discussions about these issues generally are highly technical discussions among computer engineers and AI scientists―the substance of which is inaccessible to non-expert communities, including business leaders, policymakers, and the majority of the public. It is the intention of this project to produce a report that bridges the gap between the technical and policy sectors to examine how AI can contribute to different aspects of security policy.
