San Mateo County Supervisor, David Canepa, is hoping to press Congress and the UN to restrict the development of autonomous weapons also known as “killer robots.” Last August. more than 100 artificial intelligence (AI) experts signed an open letter calling on the UN to prevent the development of autonomous “weapons of terror.” [We support the banning of killer robots, but both logic and experience teach us that the same governments we are asking to create such a ban will secretly develop them in spite of any ban. The military seldom worries about mere laws. All they have to do is claim that their efforts are for national security or world peace, and the people will acquiesce. That’s how we got the present killer-drone program. Since laws will never stop tyrants from developing more efficient weapons, our only hope is to create a political system that prevents tyrants from coming to power. That’s what Freedom Force International is all about.] -GEG
A California lawmaker introduced a resolution Tuesday to ban the use of autonomous weapons.
According to KPIX 5, San Mateo County Supervisor David Canepa is looking to press Congress and the United Nations to restrict the development of “killer robots.”
On Tuesday, Canepa introduced a resolution to ban, in his own words, “autonomous weapons, AKA, killer robots.” If the resolution is adopted, San Mateo County would be the first in the United States to urge Congress and the United Nations to restrict weaponized robotic technology.
“As policy makers, for us to catch up with technology we ourselves have to be out in front of it,” Canepa said. “So that’s why we’re working on this issue.”
Canepa’s decision came after watching a video depicting the dangers of autonomous weaponry produced by UC Berkeley computer science professor Stuart Russell. The video, backed by theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and entrepreneur Elon Musk, was presented at a United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons in Geneva.
Entitled “Slaugherbots,” the video has garnered over 2 million views since being published on YouTube in early November.
