This is the January 22, 2020 hearing on "AI [artificial intelligence], UAVs [unmanned aerial vehicles], Hypersonics, and Autonomous Systems: Emerging Technologies and Euro-Atlantic Security," held before the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe. From the opening statement of Marc Veasey: "The subject matter for today's hearing relates to the impact of emerging technologies on Euro-Atlantic security. And I'm looking forward to learning a great deal from our witnesses today on this subject. New threats that we are concerned with range from hypersonic weapons, to drones, to autonomous weapon platforms, artificial intelligence, directed energy, and others. These technologies have the potential to unlock some very important capabilities to ensure the defense of our homeland and support our allies and friends abroad. However, these same technologies are under development by some of our strategic competitors--Russia chief among them--and so I'll look forward to hearing from our experts and their views on how potential adversaries are looking to use some of these same technologies to threaten us and our allies around the world." Statements, letters, and materials submitted for the record include those of the following: Kelley M. Sayler, William Inboden, and Chris Jenks.
