The report examines the potential for arms control for military applications of artificial intelligence (AI) by exploring historical cases of attempted arms control, analyzing both successes and failures.
The authors argue that policymakers can take steps today that may make AI technology more controllable in the long run by shaping its development.
"History teaches us that policymakers, scholars, and members of civil society can take concrete steps today to improve the chances of successful AI arms control in the future," write the authors. "These include taking policy actions to shape the way the technology evolves and increasing dialogue at all levels to better understand how AI applications may be used in warfare. Any AI arms control will be challenging. There may be cases, however, where arms control is possible under the right conditions, and small steps today could help lay the groundwork for future successes."
