Use of ‘killer robots’ in wars would breach law, say campaigners | Artificial intelligence

The use of fully autonomous weapons in a theater of war would breach international law, and experts say, as longstanding calls for a ban on “killer ” intensify.

These AI-powered guns, planes, ships and tanks could fight future wars without being subject to any human control, as high-tech nations step up investment in the weapons and inch towards full autonomy.

The groundswell of opposition among scientists, faith leaders, tech companies, nongovernmental groups, and ordinary citizens shows that the public understands that killer robots cross a moral threshold. Their concerns, shared by many governments, deserve an immediate response.

How about putting AI towards solving the issues that cause wars in the first place (creating abundance for everyone by maximizing efficiency as a start.) Seems like a better use of energy. This is scary.
