Improving Export Controls Enforcement Using Data Science and Artificial Intelligence

December 6, 2022 • 1:00 – 2:00 pm EST

As technology has become increasingly central to strategic competition with Russia and China, export controls have moved to the forefront of U.S. foreign policy on technology issues. Most notably, restricting Russia’s access to advanced technology through export controls is a key part of the U.S. response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, as U.S. government officials have repeatedly stated.

Unfortunately, nearly all the debate is focused on whether and when to apply export controls, not how to ensure that export controls are effectively administered and enforced after they are applied. The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS) at the Department of Commerce oversees most export controls. BIS is increasingly confronting worldwide smuggling and export control evasion networks, especially those that are supported by Russia and China.

Please join Under Secretary Alan Estevez, Greg Allen, and Bill Reinsch as they roll out the Scholl Chair and AI Governance Project's joint report, "Improved Export Controls Enforcement Technology Needed for U.S. National Security," that discusses the potential of artificial intelligence in managing export controls enforcement despite these challenges.
