“Autonomous systems are gradually displacing humans from the battlefield, and in many aspects, this can be a boon to the military, who are exposed to less risk. However, at the same time, humans transfer to artificial intelligence (AI) a part of their powers, and consequently a part of their responsibility. According to experts, neural networks will probably never learn to explain their decisions to humans. This can become a serious problem once AI is involved in such areas as intelligence, data analysis, communications and control, scenario development, and in the long run decision making.” – Director of PIR Center’s Emerging Technologies and Global Security Project Vadim Kozyulin.

“The latest prepcom has two main opposite results: in two weeks it was not possible to reach consensus among the NPT members and agree on the text of recommendations for the 2020 Review Conference, but it was decided to appoint Argentinean diplomat Rafael Mariano Grossi as the Chair of the Review Conference – his formal appointment will take place at the end of 2019," Adlan Margoev, PIR Center “Russia and Nuclear Nonproliferation” Program Director. 

PIR Center's Particpation in the 2010 NPT Review Conference

On May 3-28, 2010 the Eighth NPT Review Conference is taking place in New York. Having entered into force forty years ago, the NPT has become a cornerstone of the international nuclear nonproliferation regime. The NPT serves as a basis for the promotion of the nuclear disarmament process and is a framework for the peaceful uses of nuclear energy.

International security largely depends on the success of the NPT Review Conference.

PIR Center president Vladimir Orlov is an adviser to the Russian delegation and takes an active part in the work of the Conference. “Ways of Nuclear Disarmament” Project Coordinator Elena Geleskul represents PIR Center.
