Leaders of Top Robotics and AI Companies Call for Ban on Killer Robots | Future of Life Institute

 

Leaders from AI and robotics companies around the world have released an open letter calling on the United Nations to ban autonomous weapons, often referred to as killer robots.

Founders and CEOs of nearly 100 companies from 26 countries signed the letter, which warns:

“Lethal autonomous weapons threaten to become the third revolution in warfare. Once developed, they will permit armed conflict to be fought at a scale greater than ever, and at timescales faster than humans can comprehend.”

  1. I think this is an only right and obvious option. There no need for killer robots at all, especially considering the evolution of Artificial Intelligence. The scenario from the Terminator movie could be a reality, and this is terrible. I believe that Artificial Intelligence must be used for peaceful purposes, to cure diseases not to harm other people. I agree with leaders of Top Robotics and AI companies – killer robots must be banned, there are no other way!
