(PCM) There has been a new warning issued by a group of concerned scientists, researchers and academics that include Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Apple CEO Steve Wozniak claiming that “killer robots” that are part of a global military artificial intelligence arms race are inevitable unless some kind of preventative measures and mandates are put into place.
The letter states “The stakes are high. Autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms.” The letter goes on to state that these types of advanced weapons will be feasible “within years, not decades. The weapons require no costly or hard-to-obtain raw materials, so they will become ubiquitous and cheap for all significant military powers to mass-produce. Autonomous weapons are ideal for tasks such as assassinations, destabilizing nations, subduing populations and selectively killing a particular ethnic group.We therefore believe that a military AI arms race would not be beneficial for humanity.”
No more are “killer robots” something out of a science fiction film, they are a reality that could quite possible cause catastrophic events. Many military groups from all over the world are already beginning to experiment with AI and most modern warfare is already conducted using remote controlled machines. The letter calls for a ban on autonomous weaponry and encourages all concerned citizens from all over the globe to take a stand and sign their names to the open letter as well!
What do you think? Will “killer robots” become the wave of future warfare?
