Artificial intelligence (AI) is probably the most widely used terms of 2018. From smartphones to automated cars, the reach of the technology is slowly growing as tech giants are finding new ways to implement it with pretty much everything we use. While most of it is to improve life in the longer run, a good part of its resources are also being used to build autonomous weapons. It s a move many tech giants and leaders are against, and it looks like they are all coming together to oppose it. Also Read - Microsoft replaces human journalists with Artificial Intelligence

In order to give more momentum to the move, about 100 tech giants and industry leaders have come together to sign a pledge, promising that they will not develop autonomous weapons. The list of signatories includes, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, DeepMind s co-founders Shane Legg, Mustafa Suleyman, and Demis Hassabis, Skype founder Jaan Tallinn, and some of the world s most respected AI researchers.

The Verge reports that the pledge was published at the 2018 International Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence (IJCAI) in Stockholm. It was widely organized by the Future of Life Institute, which has helped issue letters from some of these signatories before as well. However, this is the first time that the parties involved have individually pledged not to develop autonomous weapons.

The move comes in response to the growing trend of AI s implementation with military operations in many countries. While US and China have invested heavily in the technology, a report from ToI states that even the Indian government is planning on employing AI in its armed forces. The report suggests that the government is coming up with an AI taskforce, which can help develop AI for security and defense needs of the nation.
