Arun Sukumar at DILEMA 2023 conference


Arun Sukumar presented on "'Cyber-ing' the AI Regime: Path Dependencies and Pathologies to Avoid in the Creation of Rules for Military AI" during a panel on Governance of Military AI during the DILEMA (Designing International Law and Ethics into Military Artificial Intelligence) 2023 Conference on 12-13 October 2023, organised by the Asser Institute in The Hague.

The DILEMA 2023 Conference, held on 12–13 October 2023 at the Asser Institute in The Hague, addresses the complex and interdisciplinary issues raised by military applications of artificial intelligence (AI). The potential embedding of AI technologies in weapons systems has been an important subject of scholarly as well as policy debates for many years. More recently, other applications of AI in the military domain, such as AI-driven decision support systems for intelligence, surveillance, risk assessment, detention operations, or target identification, have also received attention. The deployment of AI technologies in a military context raises major legal and ethical concerns, but also opportunities to improve military performance and decision making, and possibly to mitigate harm in armed conflict. The DILEMA conference offers a broad platform to engage in an interdisciplinary dialogue around both theoretical and practical questions related to military AI, and features some of the latest research insights from the fields of law, ethics, computer science, and other disciplines. The conference seeks in particular to promote innovative perspectives that contribute to advancing the boundaries of research in the field of military AI.
