The impact of Artificial Intelligence
on Strategic Stability and Nuclear Risks

Recent advances of Artificial Intelligence (AI), are expected to leverage important, if not disruptive, improvements in almost all dimensions of warfare, including missile defence, electronic warfare and cyber warfare. They are also expected to generate new strategic challenges and unprecedented nuclear risks, while also potentially offering positive developments in terms of transparency and verification. This event draws on the publication of a series of SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute) reports that map out and compare regional perspectives. Please join us for this debate with experts from around the globe.
