Ambitious and Responsible – the UK Approach to AI in Defence

As the world moves rapidly to realise the transformational benefits of AI technologies, we must be aware of – and responsive to – concerns posed by their use, which are often particularly acute in the military domain.

Drawing on expertise from defence, foreign policy and academia, this session will explore how the UK Ministry of Defence’s ‘Ambitious, Safe, Responsible’ approach addresses key ethical challenges and how our organisation is practically responding through the establishment of our Defence AI Centre. It will also set out our intent to engage internationally on the national and human security risks arising from the use of AI.
