Errors in early warning systems used to detect attacks by nuclear missiles can lead to a nuclear war by mistake. People have less and less time to analyse and evaluate alarm messages, so that artificial intelligence (AI) systems are increasingly being used for this purpose. But even AI systems cannot provide reliable results in such applications. (… continue)
The following experts in computer science and especially artificial intelligence are aware of the great achievements of this discipline and are convinced that most applications of AI bring great benefits to people. However, they warn against their use in military early warning and decision-making systems. The fundamental problem that decisions based on uncertain and incomplete knowledge can be wrong cannot be solved with AI techniques either.
