DISARMAMENT & INTERNATIONAL SECURITY COMMITTEE(DISEC)
AGENDA: DISCUSSING THE USE OF AI IN AUTONOMOUS WEAPON SYSTEMS.
Founded in 1945 under the Charter of the United Nations, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) is the primary policy-making organ of the United Nations (UN). The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC), is one of six major committees that serve the General Assembly. The Disarmament and International Security Committee focuses on issues of international security with aims to peacefully resolve military and diplomatic conflicts across the globe. To achieve this goal, DISEC encourages open debate during its sessions. Every country has one vote and all votes have the same power. The First Committee provides all 193 nations with a voice with which to discuss issues of global disarmament.
Advances in AI technologies, such as machine learning and computer vision, have paved the way for the development and deployment of autonomous weapons systems. These systems have the potential to revolutionize warfare by enhancing accuracy, reaction time, and operational capabilities. However, the increased autonomy of these weapons raises critical questions about human oversight, accountability, and the potential for unintended consequences. The lack of human control and decision-making in autonomous weapons systems raises significant ethical concerns. These systems could potentially violate the principles of distinction, proportionality, and military necessity, which are fundamental to international humanitarian law. The deployment of such weapons could lead to an arms race, with potentially adverse consequences for global security. With the fate of the Future of warfare in your hands, it is up to you delegates to either pave a road of cynical and mechanical world order or one that we humans won't regret.
