Is anyone else coming to the realization that humans will soon be ruled by robots? Just kidding…?
The technology is advancing at an extremely rapid rate. It is advancing so much that Elon Musk, founder/co-founder of Tesla, Space X and Paypal, famed astrophysicist Stephen Hawking, Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak and 1,000 of the world’s top robotics engineers recently send a letter to the government asking them to ban the use of autonomous weapons.
Previously U.S. News has reported on warnings coming from the robotics community:
Hawking and Musk have previously urged scientists to be wary while developing artificial intelligence, cautioning that autonomous machines may not be able to understand the possible good and evil consequences of their actions.
