The hype surrounding AI had made it easy to overstate the opportunities and challenges posed by its development and deployment in the military sphere. Many of the risks posed by AI in the nuclear domain today are not necessarily new. That is, recent advances in AI (especially machine-learning techniques) exacerbate existing risks to escalation and stability rather than generating entirely new ones. While AI could enable significant improvements in many military domains (including nuclear weapons), future developments in military AI will likely be far more prosaic than implied in popular culture. The book’s core thesis is deciphering, within a broad range of technologies, proven capabilities and applications, from mere speculation. After an initial surge in the literature related to AI and national security, broadly defined, more specificity in the debate is now required.
