Boffins’ killer robot warn­ing

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

ACA­DEMICS have put to­gether a short film warn­ing of the dan­gers of KILLER robots.

Boffins at the Univer­sity of Cal­i­for­nia, in Berkley, are con­cerned about the in­creas­ing use of au­ton­o­mous weapons – such as drones, tanks and au­to­mated ma­chine guns.

Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence ex­pert Stu­art Rus­sell said: “The tech­nol­ogy il­lus­trated in the film is not science fic­tion.

“In fact, it is eas­ier to achieve than self-driv­ing cars – which re­quire far higher stan­dards of per­for­mance.”
