Deep Dive Recap: Emerging and Disruptive Technologies, and the Gender Perspective

On the 7 June 2022, the NATO International Military Staff (IMS) hosted their fourth Deep Dive Session focusing on the nexus between the Gender Perspective, and Emerging and Disruptive Technologies (EDTs), specifically artificial intelligence (AI). This session discussed the inherent uncertainties of technology development trends and the paramount importance of policies that help pre-empt negative impacts while promoting beneficial applications. NATO’s Principles of Responsible Use for AI exemplify that approach, stressing the need to develop trust and interoperability, as well as the inclusion of a gender perspective in the design of future AI-enabled systems. The presentations were given by Dr Ulf Ehlert, Head of Strategy and Policy in the Office of the Chief Scientist and Zoe Stanley-Lockman from the Innovation Unit of the NATO Emerging Security Challenges Division.
