Netherlands to hold conference on responsible use of AI in military

Alongside the summit, 2,000 specialists and academics are in attendance at a conference where themes like slaughterbots and killer drones will be discussed.

A summit on the “responsible” use of artificial intelligence (AI) in the military will be held in the Netherlands this week, and it will feature representatives from both the United States and China.

The conference takes place at a time when interest in AI in general is at an all-time high due to the launch of OpenAI’s ChatGPT programme two months ago, even though it is unclear whether the 50 countries in attendance will agree to endorse even a weak statement of principles being drafted by the Netherlands and co-host South Korea.

We’re taking the first step in describing and working towards what responsible use of AI in the military will entail, said Dutch Foreign Minister Wopke Hoekstra.

The gathering might be the first step in eventually creating a global AI weaponry pact, albeit that is still a long way off. Leaders have been hesitant to yet to agree to any restrictions on its usage out of concern that doing so could put them at a disadvantage.

Alongside the summit, 2,000 specialists and academics are in attendance at a conference where themes like slaughterbots and killer drones will be discussed. In a presentation on Thursday, the U.S. Department of Defense will go over areas where it sees possibilities for international collaboration.

A representative of the Chinese Embassy in the Netherlands cited a position paper in which China stressed the importance of preventing “strategic miscalculations” with AI and making sure it doesn’t unintentionally worsen a conflict.
