“As a rapidly changing technology, we have an obligation to create strong norms of responsible behavior concerning military uses of AI and in a way that keeps in mind that applications of AI by militaries will undoubtedly change in the coming years,” said Bonnie Jenkins, the State Department’s undersecretary for arms control and international security.
Following an international conference attended by 60 nations around the world, the US launched a new initiative the will encourage the responsible use of artificial intelligence in the military, according to cybernews.com. The declaration has 12 points outlining the role of international law in the use of military-related AI, as well as the necessity of human control in all actions concerning nuclear weapons employment.
Artificial Intelligence can bring great advantages to the military, but at the same time it poses unique risks when applied in this domain. According to the US Department of State, “an increasing number of States are developing military AI capabilities, which may include using AI to enable autonomous systems.”
“Military use of AI can and should be ethical, responsible, and enhance international security. Use of AI in armed conflict must be in accord with applicable international humanitarian law, including its fundamental principles. Military use of AI capabilities needs to be accountable, including through such use during military operations within a responsible human chain of command and control,” declares the Department in an official statement.
