Jan 22, 2023Global Alliance for Digital Governance

Chinese military experts are reportedly exploring “smart deterrence” concepts, marking a significant evolution in China’s use of artificial intelligence (AI) and other emerging technologies from tactical and operational military levels to influence strategic-level decision-making.

South China Morning Post reported that China could become a leader in so-called “intelligent warfare”, drawing on advanced technologies such as AI, cloud computing, big data analytics and cyber offense and defense.

It is important to note that any potential military use of AI raises significant ethical and legal concerns, and it is important for governments and international organizations to address these issues through open and transparent dialogue.

Global Alliance for Digital Governance is deeply concerned and will discuss with leaders about this issue.
