Assessing Military Artificial Intelligence Strategies, Capabilities, and Trajectories
"This is a must-read volume for anybody interested in understanding both the general implications of AI in the world of defence and more specific issues, including a set of in-depth country-studies illustrating what exactly different countries are doing and trying to achieve." Andrea Gilli, Senior Researcher, NATO Defence College "This book is going to become the most important roadmap on how AI is likely to shape and influence the strategically consequential militaries of the world. No one can predict how AI is going to re-engineer wars and conflicts, but the authors offer a unique peek around the corner. And Raska and Bitzinger as co-editors remain ahead of the curve." Dr. Chung Min Lee, Senior Fellow, Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, University Professor, Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST), and Chairman of the International Advisory Council, IISS "This book provides important perspectives on different national approaches to the development of artificial intelligence that offer critical insights for current debates on the military and strategic impacts of AI."
