Washington, September 7, 2023 — Today, TIME named Paul Scharre, Executive Vice President and Director of Studies at the Center for a New American Security (CNAS), to the first-ever TIME100/AI list, highlighting 100 individuals advancing major conversations about how AI is reshaping the world.
The list features leaders, policymakers, artists and entrepreneurs across a variety of fields and from countries around the world.
“Since leaving the DoD in 2013, Scharre has worked at the Center for a New American Security, a military-affairs think tank—first as a fellow, and more recently as vice president and director of studies." writes TIME magazine. "There, he has continued to focus on the intersection of AI and the military, often following the action in the field. His first book, Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War, was released in 2018. It focused on weapons like drones, which were the central issue at the intersection of the AI and military at the time."
TIME writes further about Dr. Scharre, "As the debate expanded and policymakers became concerned with AI competition across all domains, Scharre wrote a new book. Four Battlegrounds: Power in the Age of Artificial Intelligence explains how the U.S. can prevail over China in the battle for technological superiority, warning that 'if the United States moves too slowly it could cede military dominance in a critical new technology to a rising and revisionist China.'”
