Elon Musk, DeepMind Founders, And Others Promise Not To Make Lethal AI Weapons

Recent advances in AI mean that it would now be possible to develop autonomous weapons – systems which are capable of making automated decisions to take human life. Elon Musk, DeepMind and others have signed a pledge never to create AI weapons:
"We the undersigned agree that the decision to take a human life should never be delegated to a machine. It goes on to warn "lethal autonomous weapons, selecting and engaging targets without human intervention, would be dangerously destabilizing for every country and individual."
