The world is entering a new era of warfare, with artificial intelligence taking center stage. AI is making militaries faster, smarter and more efficient. But if left unchecked, it threatens to destabilize the world. An AI arms race is already underway. That’s the blunt warning from Germany’s foreign minister, Heiko Maas. “We’re right in the middle of it.
