Bringing together a new generation of experts, this report explores the changing landscape of the nuclear policy field and assesses risks, challenges, and mitigation strategies for nuclear weapon decision making under technological complexity.
The ELN’s Sylvia Mishra writes that AI-generated fake videos – deep fakes – threaten to exacerbate chaos in conflict, lower nuclear thresholds and complicate nuclear weapons decision-making. The uncontrolled use and spread of this technology requires urgent attention from the nuclear policy community.
The ELN convened over 70 experts, researchers, and practitioners from around the world to look at the nexus between disruptive technologies, nuclear decision-making and arms control. This workshop report explores the challenges and opportunities new technologies pose to existing arms control and proposes six policy recommendations.
Drawing on insights from former high-level nuclear decision-makers and current officials at a virtual pilot-workshop, this report explores the complexities posed by emerging technologies and their possible impact on nuclear weapon decision-making.
