The late legendary scientist issues one final warning for humanity.
If robots show no mercy, how much hope is there in a battle between us versus them? Not much, say experts. More than 3,400 artificial intelligence and robotics experts, plus 19,000 other individuals, including Tesla founder Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking and Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak, signed an open letter in 2015 urging regulation of fully autonomous weapons — or, killer robots.
Technology giant Elon Musk has, once again, signed onto an open letter to the UN seeking a ban on autonomous weapons. He has been working with others in his field for years to draw international attention to the risk of an autonomous weapons race, and it appears we may be too late.
