Tesla’s Elon Musk, Google’s Demis Hassabis, and Apple’s Steve Wozniak, have endorsed a ban on fully autonomous weapons. Others have compared developments in AI to nuclear weapons, but thus far, have only called for weak regulation that will not address the legal and ethical implications of fully autonomous weapons.
A night of thought-provoking presentations on the military-industrial complex and the surveillance state, followed by some wonderful comedy. Featuring Campaign to Stop Killer Robots Coordinator Mary Wareham.
