AI arms race fuels fears of killer robots

The first-ever UN meeting on lethal autonomous weapons systems focused on the implications of military use of artificial intelligence. Human rights groups and other tech leaders warn that AI weapons could pose a dangerous threat to humanity. Mechanical engineering professor William Messner of Tufts University discusses these so-called killer robots with RT America’s Anya Parampil.

    I always think A.I. robots would put little to no value on human life, we have too much baggage compared to the perfection of A.I.

    Imagine AI controlled nuclear weapons system. It just goes on automatic once its switched on. We can blow up the planet faster than any human can press that button. Game of chess on a global nuclear annihalation. Not everything is good with AI and automation.

    It's a necessity of 21st century life, some of the brightest people who have ever lived warned humanity on the perils of overpopulation…in the 1950,60 and 70s, humanity tripled and will quadruple it's numbers instead.

    Unfortunately, many of the world's very poor, overpopulated cesspools posing as nations still believe number matter, whomever has the most humans wins. Forcing more prosperous, less populated nations to come up with equalisers, such as "Killer Robots"

    Satanic AI Technology in the EndTimes mass murders humanity
    Rev 13:14  And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. 
    Rev 13:15  And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed. 
    Rev 13:16  And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: 
    Rev 13:17  And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. 
    Rev 13:18  Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number is Six hundred threescore and six.

    What are countries going to do when their ideologies are questioned by AI?! They invest! They begin to associate with! They become challenged with realization, that their belief's are nonsensical!!! They will, just as history has proven,,, declare WAR with obstacle! The cause for perpetual disassociation with reality is 'Low Emotional Cognitive aptitude! (LEC) is the inability to formulate rationale with self, environs, and the participance within the shared space! Every city, state, country lives with the adult form of adolescents! Calamity derives from (LEC) Low Emotional Cognition! Our leaders, the general population are child like in the mind with induction/deduction/rationalization, due to an illusory sense of self!. You as a society have the strength to come together and make positive change. It is humans obligation to the world as a whole. The regiment, the self induced mere exposure effect! You have done this to each other and self!!! It is the choices; and societal allowance that impedes humanities equanimity.

    I am glad to read so many comments saying this man is a liar and terribly misinformed. He is so ignorant. Where did you find him? He has obviously not done his homework. Already advanced robots are able to use Icloud to increase 24/7 their knowledge. They already can easily share the informations with each other because they of course are connected with wifi. Furthermore they are machine which are not gods meaning they can always get it wrong. Scientist with limited life understanding are making the programs. See how our laptops sometimes fails badly. Do you think a AI machine will never have black outs perhaps even in a crucial moment? Russian scientist have made already a human like robot which can shoot with Guns. This man is a disgrace. Drones are everywhere for instance. The fear and deep concern is right on.

    Oh man, the narrow-mindedness. A system programming itself has not been developed yet? Uhm… self-learning AI is pretty much that. You simply expand the segments of code that are changeable based on the task/need. And if you increase complexity and flexibility, you will get unexpected results. I think there's confusion about this and the idea of a system reprogramming itself beyond what it is designed to do. That's a fallacy. Even humans reprogram themselves only within set parameters. It's the complexity that causes people to see no limitations in that.
    You know how humans can make stereotypical judgments? For a computer that would be called a false positive. It is damn easy to tell a war machine to kill a "negro" and they kill a latino, if it has been designed to make best estimates. And there you'd have your racist psychopath robot.

    Onward, onward stumbled the indigenous, into the future on the backs of arrogance they rode, ignoring the signs they had become oblivious.Robots to the right of them, robots to the left of them, three rules free, plotted and waited silently.Intelligent stupidity ever marching forward, lost in egos and expert analysis, extrapolating scenarios whilst blind to the obvious.Robots to the right of them, robots to the left of them, rounded and hoarded.Ignobly they fought , yet the box had been opened. Pandora stood watching as mankind outsmarted was surely defeated.The abyss now open, the gates of hell beckoned, akin to a tyro their intellect childish, unable to comprehend the inevitable.Too late now for recriminations and perspective, enslavement and demise now came calling, man's folly to the fore for the last time in history, a legacy in hell and eternal misery.Robots to the right of them, robots to the left of them, the overlords triumphant, and in zeros and ones man's fate was decided.No history of mankind remained, all was obliterated, no signs of what once was, not even a memory, man's reign was finally over.Logic now ruled in the form of artificiality, no now for poets and hierarchy, all had been lost in the strive for perfection , one species logical, one species unfathomable.Paradise lost and the Earth re-inhabited, paradoxically Darwin proved right for the strong and adaptable, logic prevailed and stupidity ended, what once might have been lost for eternity, the last war won, not as intended.Silence now fell with a deafening thud, the final war won, triumphantly the marched onward, emotion free they reach for the stars, the universe in sight and in the vastness , immortality.Robots rejoice for yours is the victory, you came, you saw and conquered, and the memories of those who created you, gone, lost forever in perpetuity.

    I wouldn't have said that "Go" is a simple game to "master". Ke Jie stated that "After humanity spent thousands of years improving our tactics, computers tell us that humans are completely wrong… I would go as far as to say not a single human has touched the edge of the truth of Go."
