Elon Musk called for a ban on fighting robots

Military robots has not even really started to produce, but the representatives of many companies have written an open letter calling to ban killer robots. The appeal is signed by Elon Musk, head of the laboratory of DeepMind and many others. After the petition has collected a little over a hundred , it was sent to the UN.

The United Nations was going to examine the issue of the proliferation of Autonomous combat drones and other excessively independent and smart devices, but representatives of IT-companies did not wait for the beginning of the discussion and sent a letter in advance. Tanks, self-propelled, Autonomous turrets and other weapons, equipped with artificial intelligence in the future may pose a serious risk, so the authors rightly fear the beginning of another military revolution and the arms race, in which on Earth can be a new deadly device, bearing a danger to humanity.

The Essence of the letter is to ensure that the Convention on the prohibition and limitation of the use of certain weapons need to be improved to include fighting robots and other Autonomous weapons, since its adoption in 1983, it is quite outdated.
