Artificial Intelligence, Arms Control, Regulations, Verification, Compliance


The emergence of Artificial Intelligence has brought new challenges and opportunities for the global arms control regime. Integration of AI into military systems can complicate states’ security matrix, due to its speed and accuracy, with additional problems of distinguishability, integration, and accountability. AI can be a useful tool to enhance transparency in verification measures for an effective arms control treaty. Arms control for the regulation or limiting the use in military systems is as important as the use of AI for improving arms control regime. Integration of AI in arms control is not without its pitfalls but offers several new opportunities. Its use could help address some of the anxieties that prevent states from willingly engaging in an arms control agreements. These developments are important for the shortcomings in global arms control treaties, and also regional rivals like India and Pakistan. Integration of AI could provide incentive for the South Asian nuclear neighbors to maintain strategic stability in the region.
