Our edited volume Artificial Intelligence and International Conflict in Cyberspace, a collaboration with GÉODE, and edited by Fabio Cristiano, Dennis Broeders, François Delerue, Frédérick Douzet and Aude Géry is out now, in open access.
The volume is based on papers presented during our September 2021 hybrid conference on Artificial Intelligence and International Conflict in Cyberspace, which we organized together with Frédérick Douzet and Aude Géry from GÉODE in The Hague. The book is subdivided into three parts (technical and operational challenges, strategic and geopolitical challenges, and normative and legal challenges) and contains contributions by Andrew C. Dwyer, Wesley R. Moy, Kacper T. Gradon, Simona R. Soare, Arun Mohan Sukumar, Jeppe T. Jacobsen, Tobias Liebetrau, Mariarosaria Taddeo, David McNeish, Alexander Blanchard, Elizabeth Edgar, Louis Perez, and Jack Kenny.
This edited volume explores how artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming international conflict in cyberspace.
Over the past three decades, cyberspace developed into a crucial frontier and issue of international conflict. However, scholarly work on the relationship between AI and conflict in cyberspace has been produced along somewhat rigid disciplinary boundaries and an even more rigid sociotechnical divide - wherein technical and social scholarship are seldomly brought into a conversation. This is the first volume to address these themes through a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary approach. With the intent of exploring the question 'what is at stake with the use of automation in international conflict in cyberspace through AI?', the chapters in the volume focus on three broad themes, namely: (1) technical and operational, (2) strategic and geopolitical and (3) normative and legal. These also constitute the three parts in which the chapters of this volume are organised, although these thematic sections should not be considered as an analytical or a disciplinary demarcation.
Technical and operational challenges
Strategic and geopolitical challenges
