Of all the consequential potential applications for artificial intelligence, nothing may rival its use by military operations. The very idea of life-and-death decision-making by AI-enabled weapons systems has induced fear in the collective social imagination for decades – the first “Terminator” movie was released in 1985.

Hollywood’s deployment of special effects is lightyears beyond the capabilities of today’s AI. But the U.S. military and NATO take both its potential benefits and its dangers very seriously. In August 2021, for instance, the Center for Security and Emerging Technology released “Responsible and Ethical Military AI,” which examines how key U.S. allies perceive AI ethics for defense. NATO, too, plays a role in responsible AI governance, in ways that foster its internal alliances, maintain interoperability, and project deterrence to hostile interests while ensuring stability and preventing risks.
