In this episode, Dr Lauren Sanders speaks to Professor Hitoshi Nasu, from the Lieber Institute at West Point about artificial intelligence and its potential use in targeting operations. Although a well traversed topic, it is one that is not often viewed from the perspective of the benefits of how AI technology can aid in decision-making during military actions. Professor Nasu also talks about the CCW GGE on LAWS and what direction he thinks regulation of autonomous weapons can realistically take.
