Abstract

This paper considers the impact of high levels of autonomy in cyber weapons, providing an example of innovations that can further undermine orthodox strategic security architectures and processes. Linear approaches to strategic thinking could be challenged by the potential for leaps in technological change that are exponential rather than linear. This paper considers both the implications of these capabilities on traditional security processes and architectures as well as the intersections in developing international regimes for cyber and lethal autonomous weapons systems (LAWS).

Keywords: AI, autonomy, cyber weapons, lethal autonomous weapons systems (LAWS), international security
