How to Deepen Transatlantic Cooperation in AI for Defense

EST
Tuesday, March 23, 2021 - 10:00 AM to 11:00 AM
Virtual Webinar

A transatlantic divide is emerging on how to adopt artificial intelligence (AI) in defense, and it threatens to erode military deterrence capabilities and interoperability among allies. On one side, the U.S. Department of Defense is accelerating the adoption of AI across all domains of warfare—land, sea, air, space, and cyberspace—and is pushing for as much machine-to-machine interaction as possible. On the other side, the EU is pursuing a human-centered approach, resolving recently to ban any “human-out-of-the-loop” autonomous weapons systems.

ITIF's Center for Data Innovation hosted a video webinar to discuss the transatlantic opportunities and challenges to promoting better cooperation in military use of AI.
