'We need to take seriously the possibility that there might be a ‘Pandora’s box’ moment with AGI that, if missed, could be disastrous.

Machines have begun to take the place of humans on the battlefield. Some military and robotics experts have predicted that fully autonomous weapons could be developed within 20 to 30 years. Such weapons, also known as “killer robots,” would be able to select and engage targets without human intervention. Their use could undermine the protection of civilians in armed conflict
After describing the trend toward increased autonomy, this report argues that fully autonomous weapons would be incapable of meeting international humanitarian law standards, including the rules of distinction, proportionality, and military necessity. These robots would lack human qualities, such as the ability to relate to other humans and to apply human judgment, that are necessary to comply with the law
This report calls for an absolute ban on the development, production, and
use of fully autonomous weapons. While domestic measures can serve as
a starting point, states should adopt an international treaty prohibiting
the weapons before they show up in national arsenals.

Do you think this the Tech of today? You think this is how far robots have come?
Or do you think the Technicians and Robots are further advanced? (We just aren't being alowed to see it yet??)
I really did rate the Terminator franchise highly but to think its nearly here on the streets is kinda trippy!!
Imagine if these things turn on us....
I am going to make it my duty to befriend as many robots as possible...
