Research for responsible AI in the military domain: REAIM2023

News - 13 February 2023 - Webredactie Communication

Delft AI and ethics researchers lead academic forum of REAIM conference 15 and 16 February.

The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs is hosting the REAIM 2023 conference in The Hague, on Responsible Artificial Intelligence in the Military Domain. Jeroen van den Hoven, Stefan Buijsman and Filippo Santoni De Sio of the TU Delft Digital Ethics Centre will organise the Academic Forum portion of the programme. 

REAIM provides a platform to discuss the opportunities and risks of AI, share knowledge and experiences. The conference aims to jointly arrive at an agenda, ultimately leading to international agreements on how this technology can be developed and applied responsibly within the military domain.

Delft University of Technology believes in the importance of designing technology that respect our values and include meaningful human control. Decades of research have given us powerful AI technologies. Now is the time to ensure that these AI technologies are put into practice in a responsible manner. Especially in the military domain, value-driven AI design is essential because of the great reliance on digital technologies and little margin for error. Current and future military AI applications therefore must be reliable, responsive to human inquiry and act according to well-represented values such as democracy and inclusivity. 
Delft University of Technology will contribute to this ambition with essential knowledge and valuable instruments, at REAIM 2023 and beyond. An overview of academic research into responsible AI for the military domain is available for download here.
