Hybrid seminar on European policies for Artificial Intelligence in Defence


Eurodefense Netherlands and the Royal Netherlands Society of Engineers organise an international seminar titled "European Policies for Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Defence".
The seminar will take place in hybrid form on May 24th at KIVI in The Hague. 

Early this year, the European Union adopted the groundbreaking European Union AI Act, marking a significant milestone in the regulation of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. However, this law does not cover defence-related applications of AI.

However, the development of AI in the defence sector is just as rapid as in other sectors of society. Therefore, during our seminar, we will explore the opportunities and challenges of AI for our sector and the potential implications for European policies.

Five leading speakers will provide a broad overview of future AI related developments in the defence sector and indicate their implications for existing and future policies. This includes technological options to improve situational awareness and recognize fake news, but also ethical aspects such as meaningful human control in the autonomous deployment of weapon systems.
