Machine learning algorithms have begun to play a critical role in modern society. Governments inevitably will employ machine learning to inform their decisions about whether and how to resort to force internationally. This essay identifies scenarios in which states likely will employ machine learning algorithms to guide their decisions about using force, analyzes legal challenges that will arise from the use of force-related algorithms, and recommends prophylactic measures for states as they begin to employ these tools.
