Artificial Intelligence: Applications and Implications for International Security
Kenneth Cukier, Data Editor, The Economist
Professor Murray Shanahan, Professor of Cognitive Robotics, Imperial College London
Chair: Dr Patricia Lewis, Research Director, International Security, Chatham House
Discussions about the future of artificial intelligence (AI), whether philosophical or popular, tend to view artificial intelligence as distinct from, and a potential threat to, human intelligence. But the potential applications for AI in assisting the human decision-making process on international financial, political and military issues have gone underexamined. These issues are often discussed in highly technical terms, the substance of which is inaccessible to non-expert communities, including business leaders, policy-makers and the majority of the public. This event, jointly hosted by the US Project and the International Security Department, will allow researchers and policy-makers to explore areas of common concern as these technologies become increasingly integrated into decision-making structures.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
