On 1 October Gen André Lanata, NATO Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, hosted a discussion among members of the North Atlantic Council and NATO’s Military Committee regarding the potential impact of disruptive technologies on the future security of the alliance.
Speaking at the event in Genval, Belgium, NATO Secretary General Stoltenberg commented “Today, emerging and disruptive technologies are having a profound impact on how the alliance carries out its core tasks. How we understand, adopt and implement those technologies will largely determine our future security, and NATO will play a key role in driving this change.“
The meeting formed part of NATO efforts to leverage the power of data science, machine learning and other new technologies to improve the decision-making process. The high-level event was a follow-up to the NATO Summit 2018 in Brussels, where allied leaders declared that NATO will continue to enhance its intelligence, strategic awareness, advance planning and decision-making.
