Tech Transforms podcast: Deploying artificial intelligence to advance freedom and global peace

On the Tech Transforms podcast, sponsored by Dynatrace, we talk to some of the most prominent influencers shaping critical government technology decisions.

According to Paul Scharre, Vice President and Director of Studies at the Center for a New American Security, a new industrial revolution has begun. In his latest book Four Battlegrounds: Power in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, Scharre argues that artificial intelligence (AI) is at the forefront of this wave of change. As machinery became ubiquitous during the Industrial Revolution, AI will touch every aspect of our lives and cause profound disruptions in the global balance of power. This can be resolved, says Scharre, by conquering the “four battlegrounds.”

Scharre joins me and Mark Senell in Episode 61 of the Tech Transforms podcast. During our chat, Scharre unpacks the powers that AI and machine learning hold in the journey to advancing freedom and global peace. He reminds listeners that this begins through collaboration between industry and government to reduce the technological divide.

Responsibly deploying artificial intelligence in the government

Scharre acknowledges some of the concerning truths about AI. Specifically, he recognizes how people can use AI with malicious intent, examples including cybercrime and cyber-attacks. However, realizing the rapid pace of progress in AI and its benefits, Scharre calls for the implementation of guardrails to help mitigate these risks. He urges developers and users to thoughtfully deploy these technologies and ensure that the proper regulations and safety features are embedded into the systems.
