Strategic Competition in an Era of Artificial Intelligence
A further useful insight from the CNAS report is the list of properties of successful AI adoption which should guide both private as well as state interests:
– possessing large volumes of the right data
– training, enabling and sustaining people with the right (AI) skills
– identify the correct incentives for adoption – including recognition of AI as a general purpose tool
– ensure strong collaboration between public and private actors, including development of appropriate regulatory frameworks (e.g. balance of privacy vs. public interest, or whether distribution of AI-specialised hardware should be controlled like weapons are today)
Developing strong, pragmatic and principled national security and defense policies.
