Humanitarian AI
While militaries around the world race to develop applications of emerging technologies—such as artificial intelligence, autonomy, and blockchain—these applications generally seek to improve intelligence capabilities, the effectiveness of various forms of attack, force protection, or perhaps logistical functions that support operating forces involved in combat. In government and military decisions regarding how to use emerging technologies, where is civilian protection? In this talk, I will show how AI can be channelled to uphold humanitarian values in and towards the end of conflict by protecting vulnerable populations, mitigating civilian harm, and setting conditions for a lasting peace.
