"Today, the world is witnessing so-called 'Technological Predominance or Technological Dictatorship' process, which means that emerging technologies get introduced in a military sphere for modernization of existing and production of new arms. There is not a politician or a military man who would confirm that artificial intelligence (AI) is in charge of strategic decisions. Though people are currently dealing with weak AI, strong AI and even 'super-AI' are to be available in the not so distant future.” – Director of PIR Center’s Emerging Technologies and Global Security Project Vadim Kozyulin.

In his paper, Dr. Vladimir A. Orlov addresses the question whether the international community has to survive a cyber equivalent of the Cuban Missile Crisis to realize the importance of achieving some kind of agreement on cyber issues, and on the broader agenda of international information security. Though there is a considerable degree of scepticism about the possibility of drafting an international convention on non-proliferation of cyber-weapons amid deteriorating security situation, yet a first step must be made, and it does not have to be legally binding or comprehensive.

Even if due to the political situation such support is to mean silent non-resistance.
