FP Virtual Dialogue: Foreign Policy in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

April 15, 2021

Using technology to navigate geopolitical risk

Confronted with volatile dynamics across the geopolitical landscape, governments are increasingly turning to technology to discover unfolding events and evaluate global risks. As artificial intelligence technology continues to evolve, new tools are helping governments effectively forecast risks, adapt to rapidly changing environments and better navigate complex and shifting scenarios.

Foreign Policy, in partnership with Dataminr, convened a forward-looking conversation on diplomacy and international crisis mitigation in the digital age. Our conversation illuminated how governments are adapting to the modern global risk landscape and how the future of diplomatic engagement, crisis intervention and humanitarian action will be shaped by technological advances including AI and machine learning.
