Dr James Johnson, Lecturer in Politics and International Relations at the University of Aberdeen, has published a new book entitled Artificial intelligence and the future of warfare; The USA, China, and strategic stability. The book explores “how and why artificial intelligence-infused weapon systems will affect the strategic stability between nuclear-armed states”. Major General, Mick Ryan (of the Australia Army) has called the book “…a superb narrative that examines the strategic risks of artificial intelligence and its potential impact on deterrence, stability and the maintenance of nuclear weapon capabilities. His evidence-based recommendations on the responsible application of artificial intelligence will provide policy makers and strategists with a range of ethical responses to the dilemmas of using non-human cognitive functions in national security.” The book also explores how AI will change the way conflict is practiced and also “how decision-makers think about nuclear deterrence, escalation management, and strategic stability”. The book, published by Manchester University Press is available on Amazon as well as Waterstones and Blackwell’s.
