There is increasing focus on ethical & responsible AI, particularly in defense and security contexts. For example, many organizations (including the U.S. Department of Defense) now have principles for ethical & responsible use of AI. In this talk, Dr. Danks will provide a short history of military AI ethics discussions and look carefully at the nature of “responsible AI,” with a particular focus on military uses. He will argue that we should focus on the processes and practices that we use to design, develop, and deploy AI-enabled systems, rather than fine-grained technical details of the systems themselves.

He is also the Chief Ethicist of Carnegie Mellon University’s Block Center for Technology & Society; co-director of Carnegie Mellon University’s Center for Informed Democracy and Social Cybersecurity (IDeaS); and SGE for the Ethics Line of Effort of the National Security Commission on AI.
