  • Conflicts of the (not too distant) future
  • Lecture

No area of modern life remains untouched by AI and other new technologies, not even the military. Current conflicts still suggest traditional tank and infantry battles. Only in the margins of the Ukraine war do we hear about the importance of new technology and how it is defining a new battlefield. But what does AI mean in war? What role does robotics play in the new types of conflict that are emerging today and what does this mean for the people involved – soldiers and civilians? What does this mean for our security, for legal protection (Geneva Convention)? Are we on the threshold of an era of cyber war?

The dimensions of the changes are serious. Only an unvarnished analysis can help.
