REAIM 2023

Wednesday 15 February 2023 until Thursday 16 February 2023Add to my calendar
World Forum, Den Haag


Artificial intelligence is bringing about fundamental changes to our world, including in the military domain. While the integration of AI technologies creates unprecedented opportunities to boost human capabilities, especially in terms of decision-making, it also raises significant legal, security-related and ethical concerns in areas like transparency, reliability, predictability, accountability and bias. These concerns are amplified in the high-risk military context.

REAIM will be an in-person conference, with virtual elements to cater to online audiences. The summit will feature a varied selection of interesting plenary and breakout sessions, ‘talk shows’, demonstrations, debates and workshops, and will offer excellent opportunities for you to meet other experts and expand your network.

REAIM 2023 will be organised along the following themes:

  1. Mythbusting AI: breaking down the characteristics of AI – what do we need to know about the technical aspects of AI to understand how it can be applied responsibly in a military context?
  2. Responsible deployment and use of AI – what do military applications of AI mean in practice? What are the main benefits and vulnerabilities?
  3. Governance frameworks – which frameworks exist to ensure AI is applied responsibly in the military domain? What additional instruments and tools could strengthen governance frameworks, and how can stakeholders contribute?

The summit is expected to attract a live audience of between 1,000 and 1,500 participants in Den Haag, including government ministers, policymakers, academics, business leaders, civil society organisations and journalists from all over the world. By inviting all relevant partners we aim to share and build knowledge and common understanding of military AI, to break down the silos between different stakeholders and put this topic higher on the international political agenda.
