There’s no need for the US to go in alone to ensure that countries like China and Russia do not write the rules of the road. It’ll be essential for the US and likeminded countries and bodies like the EU to work together guided by our values. Together, we must develop and exercise new plans and operational concepts for AI enabled capabilities and systems, promote the interoperability of military platforms and decision-making procedures, pool resources for cloud computing, best practices for sharing non-sensitive data sets, and develop common standards for tests, evaluation verification and validation.
