Unfiltered: ‘Time is running out’

"In this week’s episode of Yahoo News’ Unfiltered, we talk to New School professor Peter Asaro about the dangers of artificial intelligence technology and autonomous weapons. In an age when AI plays a dominant role in pop culture, some may view Slaughterbots as science fiction, but for Asaro, it’s the not-so-distant future.

“We could wind up in situations where we have robots patrolling contested borders,” Asaro says. “Countries that start assassinating people around the world with small robots and drones, killing large numbers of a very specific set of people.”

“Time is running out,” he warns."
