Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking and others have been warning about the dangers of weaponizing artificial intelligence. Meanwhile, the Pentagon and the Russian and Chinese militaries are already in an AI weapons arms race. The Pentagon has promised that it won’t release such weapons from human control, but whether or not they will learn to release themselves–or be programmed to under various circumstances–remains an unknown. Research projects in all three countries are deeply classified, but if one deploys autonomous intelligent weapons, then the others must do the same. The simple reason is that human control would then be too slow.
This video, created by BanAutonomousWeapons.org, reveals the danger of these devices.
