A TOP US Commander fired a harrowing warning that World War 3 could be imminent after Washington unleashed new plans to build the world’s largest robot warship.
He wrote last month: “The immediate danger from militarised artificial intelligence isn’t hordes of killer robots, nor the exponential pace of a new arms race.
“As recent events in the Strait of Hormuz indicate, the bigger risk is the fact that autonomous military craft make for temping targets — and increase the potential for miscalculation on and above the high seas.”
While the chances of human death appear lower due to the robot warships – after all, if a ship is sunk, no naval troops will go down with it – unmanned craft present a more tempting target, according to Mr Karlik.
