When a group of geniuses including Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, Noam Chomsky, and Steve Wozniak band together to tell us anything, we should probably pay attention. When they’re warning us about the inevitability of human obsolescence in war, and the rise AI-powered machines, we should probably either run for the hills or go back to fighting with sticks and stones to avoid the takeover of our malevolent robot overlords.
The Future of Life Institute (FLI) just released an open letter, urging the UN to ban “offensive autonomous weapons”—and the future scenario they point to looks pretty much just like every Terminator/Neil Blomkamp movie we’ve ever seen. Which is a pretty scary thought.
