The Multilateral Dialogue of the Konrad-Adenauer-Foundation in Vienna, together with Atomic Reporters, invites you to an online discussion on Disruptive Technologies and Strategic Stability. The development and deployment of disruptive or novel technologies is creating instabilities, risks and challenges as regards arms race and crisis stability among the major nuclear-armed States as well as other States. Unmanned aerial/autonomous vehicles (UAVs) – drones – are being used not only for reconnaissance but also for aerial attacks on persons and military equipment. Artificial intelligence (AI) and cyber technologies create further challenges through their capabilities for autonomous automated weapons that can take the human out of the “kill” decision; while cyber capabilities can and have disrupted nuclear facilities, command and control systems, and internet connectivity. In addition, hypersonic delivery vehicles are changing the offence-defence dynamic through their potential to defeat early warning systems and maneuverability to deliver warheads to designated targets. These disruptive technologies already have created challenges for strategic stability and have the potential for destabilizing competition in the search for technological dominance.
