From: Future of Life Institute <Ariel@futureoflife.org>Subject: AI Researchers Create Video to Call for Autonomous Weapons Ban at UNDate: 14 November 2017 at 05:37:55 GMTTo: Paulo <firstname.lastname@example.org>
Thank you again for signing the 2015 open letter on autonomous weapons! This week, the United Nations Convention on Conventional Weapons began discussions to consider a treaty to ban autonomous weapons.
At a UN side event hosted by the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, AI researcher Stuart Russell unveiled a short film, depicting a disturbing future in which lethal autonomous weapons have become cheap and ubiquitous. The video is fiction, but it represents a scenario that could become all too real if we don’t act soon.
We encourage you to watch the video below, share the video, and keep up with our efforts to ban lethal autonomous weapons at autonomousweapons.org.
