Engineers, coders – it's down to you to prevent AI being weaponised

It's a bit flippin' late for that!

When I was a fresh faced grad on the milk round in 1978 one of the companies was proudly showing video of an 'AI' targetting system tracking a tank moving over rough terrain with visual obstructions.

I didn't take the job. But I'm under no illusions that my decision made any difference at all to the development of automated tagetting systems.

4% of Google's staff might feel better about themselves, but it won't stop people getting killed by automatically targetted weapons.

Shutting the stable door ~5 decades after the AI horse has bolted...
