#1508761: Dutch to host AI international summit in 2023
The Netherlands will host an international summit on the responsible application of artificial intelligence in the military domain, Foreign Affairs Minister Wopke Hoekstra announced at the UN General Assembly in New York.
The goal of the conference is to create an agenda that will lead to international agreements on how to establish artificial intelligence in a responsible manner in the military domain.
According to the Dutch government’s website, AI is important for “high-tech, future-proof armed forces.” They also admit that there are risks and dilemmas that will come with this task, such as the risk factor of deploying AI that could lead to a loss of human control or the lack of clarity in regards to ‘responsibility’.
“AI is developing at a rapid pace, including in the military domain. This new technology is set to become one of the greatest challenges we will face in the area of international security and arms control,” Hoekstra said.
“If we don’t make international agreements now about frameworks for the responsible development, deployment, and use of AI, we will regret it later,” he added.
The Responsible AI in the Military Domain summit – REAIM 2023 – will be cohosted by the Dutch defence ministry at the World Forum in the Hague on 15 and 16 February 2023.
