Pentagon reassures public that its autonomous robotic tank adheres to “legal and ethical standards” for AI-driven killbots

Whew…everyone can sleep sound…I didn’t realize Directive 3000.09 had been issued 🙂

“the Pentagon updated the tender to reassure critics that “development and use of autonomous and semi-autonomous functions in weapon systems, including manned and unmanned platforms, remain subject to the guidelines in the Department of Defense (DoD) Directive 3000.09” and that “All uses of machine learning and artificial intelligence in this program will be evaluated to ensure that they are consistent with DoD legal and ethical standards.”
