Design methodologies for addressing Ethical, Legal and Societal Aspects (ELSA) of military AI applications


The introduction of new technology in defence offers opportunities, yet also creates risks.
Introducing AI technology raises ethical, legal and social issues. If AI is to be applied responsibly,
these and other aspects must constantly be considered in the design, implementation, and
maintenance of AI-based systems. Highlighting and understanding the different design
methodologies from different sectors will allow for a holistic approach to be adopted, which can
then be tailored to the specificities of defence and linked to the case studies.
