Daniel Fiott briefs EU PSC Ambassadors

On 11 April 2019, Daniel Fiott was invited by the EU’s Political and Security Committee (PSC) to participate in a lunch debate on Artificial intelligence (AI). The event was part of the PSC’s initiative to enhance dialogue with think tanks, NGOS and academia on key challenges for EU foreign, security and defence policy. The event brought together PSC Ambassadors, as well as representatives from the European Commission and the European External Action Service.

Daniel joined experts from the Centre for the Study of Existential Risk (CSAR) at the University of Cambridge and Tilburg University, and he outlined recent AI developments and implications for the defence sector, with a particular focus on the EU and AI developments in Russia, China and the United States. The legal challenges and ethical dilemmas of AI were also discussed.
