    China’s shock call for ban on lethal autonomous weapon systems
    Sean Welsh, London - IHS Jane's Defence Weekly
    16 April 2018
    China has called on nations “to negotiate and conclude a succinct protocol to ban the use of fully autonomous weapon systems”, in so doing becoming the first Permanent Member of the UN Security Council to call for a ban on ‘lethal autonomous weapon systems’ (LAWS).

    The call was made on the final day of a Group of Government Experts (GGE) meeting on LAWS held at the UN office in Geneva from 9 to 13 April under the aegis of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW).

    In other noteworthy developments, Austria became the first sizable European nation to call for a ban on LAWS.

    In this case, I must agree with China, Asimov theory about robot is not without fault. There is always high probability a case happened when artificial intelligent got run out of control

    @Dante80

    What is the word for "wait" in Greek?
    And how do you pronounce it?

    It's Περιμένω (as in, I wait)
    You pronounce it pe (periscope) ri (remain) me (meh) no (nowhere).



    Why do you ask btw? (that was rather random)

    Hehe...thanks, that helps.

    The Greek nominal system displays inflection for two numbers (singular and plural), three genders (masculine, feminine and neuter), and four cases (nominative, genitive, accusative and vocative)

    In this instance, Κάνετε is the plural, Κάνεις is the singular. When you don't know someone, you tend to use the plural number, as a way of polite formal speaking. Both are correct though, it really depends on to whom you are talking with/to.

    If you are interested in modern Greek, this article may help.

    Problems with AI is that whether or not they conduct their tasks right, they conduct those tasks with extreme efficiency.

    An example would be Stock-Trading AI that created market stock mini-crash in 2010 where wall street lost 9% of its total value in minutes (only to regain most of it in a similar amount of time).

    A faulty trading program in 2012 lost a firm 440 million dollars in 45 minutes, due to loss-generating behaviour exacerbated by other programs that were functional.

    Doesn't help that I consistently hear that the main complaint of AI developers is "Let's please stop hyper-focusing on advanced functionality and please start developing failsafes".
