Podcast: Tracing the Realities of AI in the Military Domain

RAW researcher Dr. Marijn Hoijtink reflects on the realities of algorithmic warfare in Gaza and Ukraine in ‘BNR Big Five of AI in Practice’. She underlines the following pressing issues:

  1. The rise of the military-industrial-commercial complex and the important role of Google, Microsoft and Palantir in the algorithmic kill chain.
  2. How AI is changing the way war is thought, fought, and lived. Specifically, she unravels how AI is changing the human-machine-human interaction in targeting cycles by increasing the speed of war fighting, decreasing levels of human control in decisions about life and death, and broadening the scale of destruction.
  3. How responsibility for the civilian harm that is done is delegated to the technology.
