Russia invades Ukraine, policing and AI, an Australian DARPA

This week, Russia continues its assault on Ukraine despite widespread international condemnation, including a vote by 141 member states of the UN condemning the invasion. Michael Shoebridge and Dr Marcus Hellyer explore how Russia’s attack has intensified, Ukraine’s long-term war-fighting capability and the potential off-ramps for this conflict.

Dr Teagan Westendorf speaks to Professor Lyria Bennett Moses about the ethics of artificial intelligence in policing. They explore different ethical frameworks, oversight measures, data practices of AI in law enforcement, and consider the notion of ‘undemocratic AI’.

Dr Marcus Hellyer speaks with Graeme Dunk, about the potential for an Australian ‘Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency’, or DARPA. They discussed how a DARPA would support defence innovation and the delivery of capability in Australia.
