News: POSSE Leads Workshop on Emerging Technology and Risk Reduction
Posted January 25, 2019
On January 21-22, 2019, the Program on Strategic Stability Evaluation (POSSE) in the Center for Strategy, Technology, and Policy (CISTP) in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs led a workshop on “Emerging Technology and Risk Reduction” at the King’s College London.
The event brought together academics from across the globe to analyze alternative theoretical frameworks and methodologies appropriate to advancing POSSE’s shift towards understanding the strategic implications of emerging technologies against the shadow of lingering but variable nuclear salience across different regions of the globe. Topics discussed during the two-day workshop included cyber arms control, emerging technologies, nuclear-technology interface, artificial intelligence and space-based threats.
Adam Stulberg, Neal Family Chair Professor, associate chair for Research and co-director of CISTP, helped organize the workshop and made the opening remarks with Heather Williams from King’s College London and Todd Sechser from the University of Virginia. On day 2, he chaired “Is Arms Control Possible for Artificial Intelligence?” Participants in this panel were Ulrike Frank from European Council on Foreign Relations, Erin Simpson from Northrop Grumman, Marcel Dickow from the German Institute for International and Security Affairs (SWP) and Jade Leung from Oxford University Center for the Governance of Artificial Intelligence.
The purpose of POSSE is to reinvigorate inter-disciplinary, international scholarship on issues of strategic stability in a post-nuclear weapons era. An important component of this effort entails stimulating not only new policy-relevant scholarship but nurturing dialogue among the next generation of international scholars on nuclear disarmament and risk reduction issues—with a particular focus on the United States, the Russian Federation, and the People’s Republic of China.
