Hawking, Musk, Wozniak warn of military artificial intelligence arms race – Trending – CBC News

It’s naive of these guys to call for a ban on offensive autonomous weapons.
Countries who adhere to the ban​ would do everything they could to develop proto-autonomous weapons – right up to the fuzzy gray line of what’s proscribed, capable of plug-n-play activation on a moment’s notice.
Countries who don’t adhere to the ban will call the rest of us, “suckers”.
There are some very thoughtful, humorous and stupid comments on this forum https://news.ycombinator.com/item?id=9955435
“[Similar bans have] worked for things like chemical and biological warfare.”
“I think the Kurds and some Syrians would beg to differ.”

(Stephen Hawking is looking good, by the way.  I think he’s put on a bit of weight.)
