In a recent episode of The Lawfare Podcast, which explores the use of autonomous and AI-enabled weapons in warfare, Lauren Kahn, a Senior Research Analyst at CSET, provides her expert take.

In an op-ed published in Breaking Defense, CSET Space Force Fellow, Michael O'Connor, delves into the increasing concerns about AI safety and the need for rigorous safety testing before AI systems are deployed.

In their op-ed featured in Foreign Affairs, CSET’s Margarita Konaev and Owen J. Daniels shared their expert analysis in an op-ed published by Foreign Affairs. The op-ed delves into Ukraine's summer counteroffensive against Russia and the obstacles it has faced, while also acknowledging the resilience and adaptability of the Ukrainian military amidst the counteroffensive's challenges.

In an op-ed published in Breaking Defense, CSET's Owen J. Daniels discusses the potential impact of artificial intelligence (AI) on modern warfare and emphasizes the need for purposeful harnessing of AI by the Pentagon.

Militaries seek to harness artificial intelligence for decision advantage. Yet AI systems introduce a new source of uncertainty in the likelihood of technical failures. Such failures could interact with strategic and human factors in ways that lead to miscalculation and escalation in a crisis or conflict. Harnessing AI effectively requires managing these risk trade-offs by reducing the likelihood, and containing the consequences of, AI failures.

In an opinion piece for Lawfare, CSET Policy Communications Specialist Owen Daniels examined the prospects for AI applications initiating a new “revolution in military affairs.”

Deputy Director of Analysis Margarita Konaev discussed the Russian military's setbacks in Ukraine.
