Jason Oliveri Analyzes Why Regulatory Priority Should Be on Artificial Intelligence Rather than Autonomous Weapons

June 15, 2022

Hinshaw partner Jason Oliveri authored a byline in RAIL: The Journal of Robotics, Artificial Intelligence & Law titled, "Autonomous Weapons and Artificial Intelligence: The Regulatory Priority Should, for Now, Be the Latter." The article discusses the military application of artificial intelligence (AI) and potential regulatory responses.

Oliveri summarizes the debate surrounding fully autonomous weapons, and the current state of artificial intelligence regulation. He argues that regulating AI should take priority over regulating autonomous weapons. According to Oliveri, "[w]ithout question, the development and use of fully autonomous weapons deserves serious attention and continued discussion. However, the realities suggest that by prioritizing the regulation of AI’s commercial applications we can hasten and sharpen the world’s focus on regulating its military applications."
