Nowadays, the border between military technologies and civilian technologies is becoming ambiguous by technology development. The Internet and GPS were originally made for military use. On the other hand, civilian technologies have made a great contribution to space exploration and missile development. As a result of continuing spin-off and spin-on between military and civilian technologies, we have to treat new technologies from the viewpoint of dual-use technology.
We cover the issue of AI (Artificial Intelligence) because it is the latest trend of dual-use technology. Current AI gains an ability to learn itself. Technology development of AI is faster than that of expert’s prediction. Therefore, both the private sector and the government have to be prepared for the impact of AI.
In addition, we study not only the technical aspect of dual-use technology but also social aspects such as the law and ethics.
