AI-controlled weapons are coming. For a preview of their "ethics" take all the recent stories of bias in AI, only instead of not hiring a minority candidate or granting them bail, the computer shoots them.

If you study the history of the Cold War (or watched the movie Wargames), you know we've had many "close calls" that almost led to nuclear holocaust, only stopped by someone's ethics overriding their orders and training. AI won't be programmed with that "limitation".

@kyle given that humans are really bad at the task I can’t imagine them being able to teach AI how to do it any better.

@ajmartinez Reminds me of an old Simpson's quote from the Max Power episode: "There's the right way, the wrong way, and the Max Power way." "Isn't that the wrong way?" "But faster!"
