CNAS’ ‘Battlefield Singularity: Artificial Intelligence, Military Revolution, and China’s Future Military Power’
In “Battlefield Singularity: Artificial Intelligence, Military Revolution, and China’s Future Military Power,” a December 2017 report from the Center for a New American Security’s Technology and National Security Program, adjunct fellow Elsa Kania asserts that the US-China artificial intelligence race will have defense implications. “As the U.S. and China compete to innovate in AI, the trajectories of their respective advances will impact the future military and strategic balance,” her executive summary reads. Kania recommends that the US military focus on non-technical defense elements to be ready for a future in which it may not hold the kind of advantage it does today, as well as risk mitigation strategies in case a global AI race shakes up “arms race dynamics.”
