- Discussing the militarization of AI

The webinar adopted a conversational format to allow a flow and reactive discussion about the subject matter. The first panelist discussed the use of AI in the military sector, the benefits and misuses of AI and explained how AI has been deployed by the army. The discussion then tackled the case of Libya and the panelist went through the different AI-based technologies used in the Libyan conflict such as demining robots and UAVs. The last part of the discussion dealt with the ethical question of the use of AI and its importance in both reducing the risk of the misuse and assuring accountability.
The event was concluded by a Q&A session to enable the participants to ask and interact with the experts.
