In addition to holding a briefing on the dangers of nuclear weapons with our Issue Analysts, we also wanted the whole AIDemocracy network to be “in the loop” when it comes to one of the greatest threats we face today.

The network briefing took place on Wednesday, October 6th. I facilitated the discussion and provided an introduction to the development of, use and dangers of nuclear weapons. Specifically, I spoke about the three major threats that nuclear weapons pose for the world today: nuclear terrorism, nuclear accidents and miscalculated nuclear launches. I also spoke about nonproliferation and disarmament efforts, including the New START (Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty), the NPT (Nonproliferation Treaty) and others.

Feedback for this session was also very positive and I look forward to organizing more of these briefings for the entire AIDemocracy network!
