Leading scientists, experts in the field of information technologies and entrepreneurs from different countries and posted on the website Future Life Institute an open letter with a call to prevent the creation of a "killer robots". We are talking about autonomous weapons systems, on which work is closely linked with issues of morality and ethics. The letter writers believe that artificial intelligence could be the last revolution in methods of warfare. The development of modern military technologies are increasingly aimed at the development of weapons of working offline. At this time, a warning about the threat of the creation of combat robots sounded by scientists. More than a thoUSAnd engineers and researchers have signed an open letter.

Some argue that this technology can change the way of war as well as the two previous inventions - gunpowder and a nuclear bomb. The development of autonomous weapons do not stop, but we can prohibit the production companies to sell it. For example, the United Nations imposed a ban on the use of blinding laser, "- said Walsh.

"The danger is not in the development of artificial intelligence, and undeveloped. We do trust the most important features are not the most intelligent programs. There are far more pressing issues than those shown in the "Terminator" and other similar films. And they need to be solved together.
