Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs: ‘Artificial Intelligence and National Security’
In a new report from the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School for Government, written by Greg Allen and Taniel Chan on behalf of Jason Matheny, PhD, director of the US Intelligence Advanced Research Projects Agency, the authors propose a framework for developing policy for military and intelligence applications of artificial intelligence. “In this piece, we propose three goals for developing future policy on AI and national security: preserving U.S. technological leadership, supporting peaceful and commercial use, and mitigating catastrophic risk,” the project’s overview reads. “By looking at four prior cases of transformative military technology — nuclear, aerospace, cyber, and biotech — we develop lessons learned and recommendations for national security policy toward AI.” Learn more about the report here.
