Purpose of REAIM 2023

REAIM 2023 aims to: 

  • put the topic of responsible AI in the military domain higher on the political agenda;
  • mobilise and activate a wide group of stakeholders to contribute to concrete next steps;
  • foster and increase knowledge by sharing experiences, best practices and solutions.

REAIM 2023 will be organised along the following themes:

  1. Mythbusting AI: breaking down the characteristics of AI – what do we need to know about the technical aspects of AI to understand how it can be applied responsibly in a military context?
  2. Responsible deployment and use of AI – what do military applications of AI mean in practice? What are the main benefits and vulnerabilities? 
  3. Governance frameworks – which frameworks exist to ensure AI is applied responsibly in the military domain? What additional instruments and tools could strengthen governance frameworks, and how can stakeholders contribute?
