War, AI and the New Global Arms Race

Lethal drones with facial recognition, armed robots, autonomous fighter jets: we’re at the dawn of a new age of AI-powered warfare, says technologist Alexandr Wang. He explores why data will be the secret weapon in this uncharted landscape and emphasizes the need to consider national security when developing new tech — or potentially face all-out AI warfare.

Some comments:

“The most fearful thing we can have in our generation is AI integrated with military hardware.”

“There are several problems with AI. With nuclear weapons, parity can be achieved. With AI, parity of power is impossible.”

“What if we better focus on global security rather than national security?”

“It’s interesting that this video is addressing AI as a conflict between nations when AI will create a rift between Digitals and Humans far faster than between humans.”
