Automated influence and the challenge of cognitive security

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Advances in AI are powering increasingly precise and widespread computational propaganda, posing serious threats to national security. The military and intelligence communities are starting to discuss ways to engage in this space, but the path forward is still unclear. These developments raise pressing ethical questions, about which existing ethics frameworks are silent. Understanding these challenges through the lens of "cognitive security," we argue, offers a promising approach.
