Major Brent Feller, United States Air Force Military Professor at the Daniel K. Inouye Asia-Pacific Center for Security Studies (DKI APCSS), published a new report article for Security Nexus that explores the potential for artificial intelligence (AI) tools like ChatGPT to assist security practitioners in the Indo-Pacific region.

In his paper, Maj. Feller demonstrates ChatGPT’s ability to provide succinct information on key security-related topics in the Indo-Pacific, such as maritime security and illegal, unreported, and unregulated (IUU) fishing. While AI can be a valuable tool for increasing knowledge and providing insights, Major Feller emphasizes that users must verify information from multiple sources. They must also exercise critical thinking in security decision-making.

The article also highlights the limitations of AI tools like ChatGPT in building relationships, a crucial aspect of solving security concerns in the region. Major Feller notes that while ChatGPT can facilitate communication and dialogue among stakeholders, personal interactions and context-specific approaches remain vital in fostering cooperation and collaboration.

As AI continues to develop and reshape various professional fields, DKI APCSS is committed to embracing new technologies to enhance its mission. The Center will continue to focus on cultivating relationships among civilian and military practitioners and institutions to advance a free and open Indo-Pacific
