Global security and foreign relations seem to be the newest workshops for artificial intelligence innovation and its applications. The multi-dimensionality of today's AI and machine learning is already having a profound influence on how nations look to conduct their foreign affairs, one of the most recent cases being China. As artificial intelligence tilts the center of gravity in world affairs towards the technologically advanced countries it becomes imperative to talk about the confluence of the two holistically. The already identified issue areas and priorities need to be put in context, and the benefits need to be discussed parallel with the possible criticism and disruptions that it will cause in our society. In this regard, the paper attempts to look at the linkages between foreign policy and artificial intelligence. It will look at both the ways in which AI can be used in the sphere of foreign policy and also create a bedrock of understanding the ramifications that AI poses for policymakers and particularly what it would mean for foreign policy.
