Book Description

This edited volume explores how artificial intelligence (AI) is transforming international conflict in cyberspace.

Over the past three decades, cyberspace developed into a crucial frontier and issue of international conflict. However, scholarly work on the relationship between AI and conflict in cyberspace has been produced along somewhat rigid disciplinary boundaries and an even more rigid sociotechnical divide – wherein technical and social scholarship are seldomly brought into a conversation. This is the first volume to address these themes through a comprehensive and cross-disciplinary approach. With the intent of exploring the question ‘what is at stake with the use of automation in international conflict in cyberspace through AI?’, the chapters in the volume focus on three broad themes, namely: (1) technical and operational, (2) strategic and geopolitical, and (3) normative and legal. These also constitute the three parts in which the chapters of this volume are organised, although these thematic sections should not be considered as an analytical or a disciplinary demarcation.

This book will be of much interest to students of cyber-conflict, artificial intelligence, security studies and International Relations.

Reviews

"An impressive and much-needed cross-disciplinary assessment of the adoption of AI-enabled cyber capabilities, Artificial Intelligence and International Conflict in Cyberspace offers an expertly edited, nuanced, and ultimately cautionary view on the rising intersections of AI and cyberspace. The volume brings technical and social science scholarship together into conversations over the potential and perils of AI as an object and subject for cyber threats, as a strategic asset to be acquired (and threatened) by great and middling powers alike, and as a technology whose development demands ethical and legal boundaries even as those boundaries may shift via iterations in AI’s deployment by states and other stakeholders. Simply put, this book is essential reading for all those interested in the securitization of information technologies in the digital age"

Duncan B. Hollis, Laura H. Carnell Professor of Law, Temple University Law School, United States

"AI is set to become a constitutional component of economic, political, and military power. But in what ways? This timely book provides us with the necessary cross-disciplinary expertise to understand what is at stake when AI mingles with cyber conflict and how the international community should react to reduce the risks of the AI transformation."
