Axios Future covered CSET's Issue Brief, "'Cool Projects' or 'Expanding the Efficiency of the Murderous American War Machine?': AI Professionals' Views on Working With the Department of Defense."

Is there a rift between the U.S. tech sector and the Department of Defense? To better understand this relationship, CSET surveyed U.S. AI industry professionals about their views toward working on DOD-funded AI projects. The authors find that these professionals hold a broad range of opinions about working with DOD. Among the key findings: Most AI professionals are positive or neutral about working on DOD-funded AI projects, and willingness to work with DOD increases for projects with humanitarian applications.

During this live event, CSET Research Fellow Dr. Margarita Konaev discussed U.S. military investments in autonomy and artificial intelligence. She provided recommendations for the Defense Department to effectively develop and field AI in the future.
