Director of research Tim Sweijs spoke at the Ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken Talk (the Dutch MFA) show on the launch of the Responsible Artificial Intelligence in the Military Domain (REAIM 2023) at the UN headquarters.
Tim spoke on the importance of AI as an example of an all-purpose technology that will transform the future of war and the need to regulation through international norms. He posed the question, “could you outline three ways in which the UN can contribute effectively to developing these new norms and involving these key actors?” Tim’s question was then discussed by the panellists, which included Minister Wopke Hoekstra and UN under-secretary for disarmament Izumi Nakamitsu.
