The AI Wave in Defence Innovation: Assessing Military Artificial Intelligence Strategies, Capacities, and Trajectories – Geneva Book Launch
The growing presence of artificial intelligence in the military domain promises to impact aspects of international security ranging from strategic stability, peace promotion, international law, technology races, as well as fundamentally changing future operational environments. To navigate the breadth of AI’s impact on defence transformation, the newly published book “The AI Wave in Defence Innovation” presents an international and interdisciplinary perspective on the adoption and governance of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) in defence and military innovation by major and middle powers. Serving as a “Geneva book launch” and in cooperation with the S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies (RSIS) in Singapore, this panel event will convene a core group of international experts to discuss select chapters from the volume, offering insights into the militarisation of artificial intelligence, as well as highlighting key similarities and differences between AI powers in the evolving strategic context.
