Engineer from Google fears a possible "uprising of cars"

Artificial intelligence combat robots can accidentally start a war.
A former Google engineer, Laura Nolan, cautioned against the possible unpredictable behavior of next-generation robotic weapons. She worked on a US Army combat drone behavior algorithm equipped with artificial intelligence technology, but left the project in protest.
Nolan emphasized the dangers of robotic weapons that are controlled by a computer, not a person, albeit remotely. "Killer robots" can act on an unpredictable algorithm that was not originally programmed. This can lead to disastrous consequences. She supported the campaign to ban combat robots on the same terms as chemical weapons, informing UN diplomats.
The scope of application of artificial intelligence is very extensive, and it includes, unfortunately, military equipment. In this regard, we recall that Russia has developed a new face recognition technology that will be tested at the 2022 World Cup.
