Nunn School Associate Professor Margaret E Kosal participated in Track II discussions on nuclear weapons in Moscow, Russia from Dec. 10-11, 2019.

The dialogues were organized by the D.C.-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) in partnership with the Moscow-based PIR Center. This meeting was the first of new U.S.-Russia Track II dialogue on “Reducing Nuclear Risks During Great Power Competition” with a small number of invited Russian and American experts in arms control, strategic stability, and nuclear security.

Kosal (pictured second from right) was asked to contribute on the impact of artificial intelligence, robotics, and associated emerging technologies on strategic stability as part of dialogue on “New Dimensions for Risk Reduction.” Kosal spoke about how current and potential future proliferation of artificial intelligence, such as machine learning, swarms, deep fakes, and other AI, could increase nuclear risks; the need to be conscious of hype and countermeasures; and some ways these issues might addressed.

The event was supported by the Defense Threat Reduction Agency’s (DTRA) Project on Advanced Systems and Concepts for Countering Weapons of Mass Destruction (PASCC).
