Experts warn that AI could further ruin world peace

6 min read

There is no doubt that artificial intelligence (AI) is likely to transform the way we fight, much like gunpowder and the atomic bomb did, and that it could completely change the way we fight, as well as make conflicts between people unimaginably different and much deadlier, according to experts.

In the last couple of days, there was speculation that US President Joe Biden and Chinese President Xi Jinping would agree to outlaw lethal autonomous weapons during their next meeting.

Even though there did not appear to be an agreement from the summit, experts believe this issue has the potential to have a profound effect on armed conflict and intensify the race for global dominance.

According to analysts, Beijing is making significant investments in artificial intelligence so that it will soon be able to change the power dynamics of the Asia-Pacific region as a whole, if not the entire world at large.

This change, of course, will have significant ramifications for the global system, which has been governed by the United States for decades.

According to a group of experts led by former Google president Eric Schmidt, these issues are not about the anxiety that will come with not being the dominant power in the world; they are about the risks that may come with living in a world in which the Chinese Communist Party becomes the dominant power.

A computer is now able to “see” and control various weapons, such as robots, drones, and torpedoes using advanced sensors controlled by artificial intelligence algorithms. This technology is on the verge of revolutionizing our view of the world.

According to Stuart Russell, a computer science professor at the University of California, Berkeley, an autonomous weapon would not have a tendency to “wake up in the morning and decide to go and start a war.”.

In simple terms, they are capable of locating, selecting and attacking human targets, or targets that contain human beings, without any human intervention, and this is what makes them so dangerous.

There are many science fiction dystopias that feature killer robots, and one obvious, albeit not very realistic, example is that of the killer robots found in many dystopian stories.

I am sure that a lot of people have been exploring that as well, I think that one is the least useful one,” Russell said.

There is no doubt that most of these weapons are still in the prototype or concept stages, but Russia’s conflict in Ukraine has provided an insight into what these weapons may be capable of.

The use of remotely controlled drones to drive people underground to seek safety has been a strategy of both sides for decades, even though they are not new.

It is Russell’s opinion that this may be one of the most significant changes that happen right away as a result of the new system.

I am of the opinion that autonomous weapons will have the likely consequence of making fighting on the battlefield pretty much impossible since you will be visible anywhere on the battlefield.

In the future, autonomous weaponry could be beneficial to assault forces in a number of ways, including increased efficiency, likely lower production costs, and the elimination of uncomfortable human emotions such as fear and anger from the combat scenario.

There are, however, moral issues involved with the benefits of these programs.

It is widely believed that if weapons are so inexpensive and simple to create, an aggressor’s ability to use them is almost limitless. Russell agrees that this is true.

There is no limit to how many missiles I can launch at one time if I want to wipe out an entire city or an entire ethnic group at the same time, he said.
