AI Scientist Letter on Autonomous Weapons

Signing the AI Researcher Open Letter on Autonomous Weapons was something of a no-brainer for me.  I am not confident that a ban would be easy to define or enact or enforce, but the attempt is worthwhile if only to give some pause and shine a spotlight on the issue.  Thanks to those (Stuart Russell, Toby Walsh, others associated with the Future of Life Institute) who spearheaded the effort.

The local news (WXYZ, Channel 7 Detroit) came by to ask me about it, and they video spot they created about it is available here.
