Trust But Verif AI: Options for regulating defence and security AI technologies

AI security and defense technologies are being developed and deployed—there is even talk of an “AI Arms Race”. There is an urgent need for the international community to understand the available options for “AI Arms Control”, including the benefits and drawbacks of different types of regulatory regimes. This project will bring together AI technologists, arms control practitioners and other experts in regulatory and technology control policies in order to develop an understanding of the ways that AI arms control might be necessary and feasible.
