The United States government is on the verge of deploying new artificial intelligence technology (AI) weapons that can make decisions on whether to kill human targets. The frightening lethal autonomous weapons, which are being developed in the United States, China, and Israel, will automatically select humans deemed a “threat” to the system and eliminate them. Some critics have voiced fears that the deployment of AI weapons would entrust machines to make decisions about whether to kill human targets, with no human oversight. This is an absolutely fundamental security issue, a legal issue, and an ethical issue. No matter how epically monstrous our government becomes, and no matter how many mechanized war machines they unleash in the future, our battle does not end with them – it only begins with them. Tonight on Ground Zero, Clyde Lewis talks with US Army veteran, military analyst, and sci-fi writer, Sean Patrick Hazlett about SKYBORG – I THINK THEREFORE I KILL. #GroundZero #ClydeLewis #Robots #Drones #AI
