Improving The Safety & Stability Of Artificial Intelligence

Nations around the world are investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) to improve their military, intelligence, and other national security capabilities. Yet AI technology, at present, has significant safety and security issues and AI systems can currently fail in unexpected ways due to a variety of causes. 

Now, a US defence & foreign policy think tank, the Center for a New American Security (CANS) has announced the creation of a Task Force on Artificial Intelligence and National Security to look into AI’s impact both in the US and around the world. 

This comes at a time when the interactive nature of military competition means that one nation’s actions affect others, including in ways that may be detrimental to mutual stability.  Currently, there is an urgent need to explore actions that can mitigate these risks, such as improved processes for AI assurance, norms and best practices for responsible AI adoption, and confidence-building measures that improve stability among all nations.

CNAS is launching a new project to better understand AI risks and specific steps that can be taken to improve AI safety and stability in national security applications. 

Major Project Objectives Include   

  • Anticipating, preventing, and mitigating catastrophic AI failures.
  • Improving US Defense Department processes for ensuring safe, secure, and trusted AI.
  • Understanding and shaping opportunities for computer governance.

This effort will include the CNAS Technology and National Security, Defense, Indo-Pacific Security, Transatlantic Security, and Energy, Economics, and Security programmes.

CNAS experts will share their findings in public reports and policy briefs with recommendations for policymakers.

Paul Scharre, the Director of Studies at CNAS commented, “AI technology is powerful but brittle, with significant reliability and security concerns...  As nations integrate AI into national security applications, it is imperative that AI systems are safe, reliable, robust, and secure. This project will help deepen our understanding of concrete steps that can be taken to address these risks in the national security space.”
