The Pathfinder Foundation & Stockholm International Peace Research Institute join hands in addressing the Strategic Stability and Nuclear Risk in the Time of Artificial Intelligence Renaissance.

The Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), in cooperation with the Pathfinder Foundation (PF), held their third in the series of international workshops on Mapping the Impact of Machine Learning and Autonomy on Strategic Stability and Nuclear Risk. The event was held at the Cinnamon Hotel, Colombo.

It has been recognized that recent technological advances in areas of machine learning and autonomy, have had an important improvement in almost all dimensions of military activities, warfare, including the use of air space and missile defence, electronic and cyber warfare. Such developments naturally, generate new and unprecedented risks to international security and strategic stability, while paving the way for positive developments.

Understanding the need for an in-depth study and analysis at strategic and technical level, SIPRI has been awarded a grant from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, to conduct a two-year research project in order to fill the existing gaps in this area through research, interviews and a series of workshops.

The Pathfinder Foundation, by associating with this pioneering and landmark activity, facilitated SIPRI in bringing together a group of experts with complementary expertise (academic, diplomatic, legal, military and technical), who would have a particular interest in various aspects of military technologies developments.

Guest speaker at the workshop was Ambassador Ravinatha Aryasinha, Secretary, Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

An impressive list of international experts from the Republic of Korea, United States, Russian Federation, Republic of India, Netherlands, People’s Republic of China, Islamic Republic of Pakistan and local experts representing the Lakshman Kardigamar Institute, Colombo University and Sim Centric Technologies, spoke at the event. Workshop synthesis and concluding remarks was made by Bernard Goonetilleke, Chairman, Pathfinder Foundation and Dr. Petr Topychkanov, Senior Researcher, Disarmament, Arms Control and Non-proliferation Program of SIPRI, according to a release.
