Conference: Realities of Algorithmic Warfare at the RE-AIM Summit

IRW’s Realities of Algorithmic Warfare project is co-hosting a session at the RE-AIM World Summit in the Hague on the 15th of February, 2022. RE-AIM stands for Responsible Use of AI in the Military domain and this summit at the World Forum will bring together academics, policymakers, military strategists, and corporations from across the world to discuss the opportunities and threats of integrating AI and machine learning into contemporary warfare.

Together with its partners from the AutoNorms research project hosted by the Center for War Studies at the University of Southern Denmark, Peace Research Institute Oslo (PRIO), The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies, Antwerp University, the War Studies Research Centre of the Netherlands Defence Academy, and Leiden University, IRW will co-host the session Realities of Algorithmic Warfare. Concrete take-aways include a deeper understanding of how and where (semi) autonomous weapon systems are being experimented with and deployed today, how they are changing the character of warfare, at what cost to civilians and an exploration of political control and legal regulation possibilities to ensure responsible deployment and use.
