Nunn School Group Publishes First of Three Articles Detailing AI Recommendations for NATO

Primary tabs

A class in the Sam Nunn School of International Affairs published the first of three articles on its recommendations for how NATO can better adopt artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. The Center for European Policy Analysis published the piece, titled “Helping NATO to Embrace Artificial Intelligence.”

Nicholas Nelson, course instructor for INTA 4901/8901: NATO Innovation Challenge, and Nico Luzum, who graduated with an M.S. in International Security in Spring 2022, co-authored the article. Other Nunn School Spring 2022 graduates Garritt Garcia, Anika Gouhl, Jack Sheldon, and Maria Winstead contributed to the report.

In this first article, the group outlines the reasons why it chose to provide AI-focused recommendations to NATO. They discovered that NATO’s interoperability in regard to technology, structure for research and development spending, and ability for “better and more holistic procurement and specialization within and between allies” made the organization a great fit to enhance its AI capabilities.

“Ultimately, we hope that these recommendations enable NATO allies to better innovate, scale, deploy, and integrate AI and autonomy-based technologies to form agile, system-wide solutions” Nelson and Luzum write. “These new capabilities will revolutionize NATO’s military and strategic affairs, thus strengthening NATO’s ability to fulfill its essential core tasks of collective defense, crisis management, and cooperative security.”
