AI in the Age of Cyber-Disorder: ISPI-Brookings Report

The rise of Artificial Intelligence applications is accelerating the pace and magnitude of the political, securitarian, and ethical challenges we are now struggling to manage in cyberspace and beyond.



So far, the relationship between Artificial Intelligence and cyberspace has been investigated mostly in terms of the effects that AI could have on the digital domain, and thus on our societies. What has been explored less is the opposite relationship, namely, how the cyberspace geopolitics can affect AI. Yet, AI applications have so far suffered from growing unrest, disorder, and lack of normative solutions in cyberspace. As such, from algorithm biases, to surveillance and offensive applications, AI could accelerate multiple growing threats and challenges in and through cyberspace.


This report by ISPI and The Brookings Institution is an effort to shed light on this less studied, but extremely relevant, relationship.

Artificial Intelligence and its applications have so far suffered from growing unrest, disorder, and lack of normative solutions in cyberspace. As such, from algorithm biases, to surveillance and offensive applications, AI could accelerate multiple growing threats and challenges in and through cyberspace. How it is possible to govern this path-breaking technology? Is it too late to avoid an AI-powered cyber-Armageddon?


The conference will be held on the occasion of the release of the Centre on Cybersecurity's annual report published in cooperation with The Brookings Institution and with the support of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. The report is part of the activity of the ISPI-Leonardo Centre on Cybersecurity and is available online.
