An expert collection on the military applications of AI









Advances in artificial intelligence (AI), deep-learning, and robotics will have a profound impact on military strategies. The effects of these capabilities will be felt across the spectrum of military requirements - from intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance to offense/defense balances and even on to nuclear weapons systems themselves.

Over the course of this week, the Bulletin, in partnership with the Stanley Foundation, is publishing top experts on how to manage the explosion of military AI research and development around the world.
