How AI is driving a future of autonomous warfare | DW Analysis

The artificial intelligence revolution is just getting started. But it is already transforming conflict. Militaries all the way from the superpowers to tiny states are seizing on autonomous weapons as essential to surviving the wars of the future. But this mounting arms-race dynamic could lead the world to dangerous places, with algorithms interacting so fast that they are beyond human control. Uncontrolled escalation, even wars that erupt without any human input at all.

DW maps out the future of autonomous warfare, based on conflicts we have already seen – and predictions from experts of what will come next.

For more on the role of technology in future wars, check out the extended version of this video – which includes a blow-by-blow scenario of a cyber attack against nuclear weapons command and control systems: https://youtu.be/TmlBkW6ANsQ

    This is why there arent detectable aliens out there in the universe. Extinction via artificial intelligence.

    Taiwan is the world’s largest producer of microchips.
    China wants Taiwan.
    Tiktok is global facial recognition technology owned by….you guessed it.
    You organise a massive slaughterbot drop anywhere with the right name/face on it and you’re farkd
    No need for nuclear weapons.
    Think about it – you want to keep all infrastructure in place when you take over
    The wheel’s spinning – who’s gonna get it first
    My vote Mara la go lol.
    You hear that humming
    Start running baby
    Alternative 1. Get a facelift
    Alternative 2. Get a doppelganger.
    This video is so no school lol
    Peace and Love humans
    I warned you for Free
    Freedom is either a vision or nothing left to lose.
    Sorry

    The best War on Russia is to stop doing business with them. Any country do business with Russia stop doing business with them too. Let them play with their weapons. They will not attack no one. Because the world have advanced weapons to. Eventually they will have no food to eat. Eventually Russia have to be divided between other countries.

    I’m afraid of China trusting in AI…this clip totaly is hillarious…
    …slow brain motion…

    Is that the war zone map?

  6. Pura Vida on May 17, 2022 at 6:47 pm

    Hasn’t mankind learned anything from history!

  7. Lidia Santoro on May 17, 2022 at 6:48 pm

    This is one of the reasons AI can be a pathway to self destruction for humanity.

    the whir of that drone swarm is chilling

    To be honest, humans don’t stand a chance in this war.

  11. Semper Fei on May 17, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    this people think nothing but war and profit from it.

  12. Bruno Arslanturk on May 17, 2022 at 6:56 pm

    It was the Turkish Bayraktar TB2 drones that won the war for Azarbaijan not the most of the time broken Israeli drones. The WHOLE WORLD already knows and appeciatea this yet INTERESTINGLY you didn’t even mention them. I wonder why? Your masters said NO!?

    Governments will start using these to control dissidents in their own lands.

  16. Yakov Keselman on May 17, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Autonomous drones are the new nuclear, except cheaper

  17. Aly Camara on May 17, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    Turkey win that war

  18. Krell Dragon on May 17, 2022 at 7:03 pm

    How is it possible when US is always maintaining hegemony over China fabricating lies antagonising and incite hatred .

  19. jabuki on May 17, 2022 at 7:07 pm

    I wish this had explained the economics of why chemical/bio weapons were banned, then spelled out the relation to AI. You want highly lethal weapons to be expensive so that proliferation can be controlled. AI is expensive to develope but once made it will be incredibly cheap to use. World leaders need to realize their very lives are threatened by AI when a $1000 completely autonomous drone can be used to assassinate any world leader who ventures outdoors.

    You forget the Drones from Turkey.

    Nice to see Isreal picking winners and losers in these wars 🤣😅

  24. Geoffrey Reeks on May 17, 2022 at 7:12 pm

    Thank you for an excellent presentation. Though, you greatly diminish the credibility of your presentation by giving credibility to "Climate Change". "Climate Change" is a political movement of the Fabian Socialists, NOT a scientific study. For example the predictions of "Climate Change" fail to be verified by later events. So, "Climate Change" is junk, not science.

    BAN on Landmines and Blinding Laser. Yes, its harmful to humans/soldiers etc… Now how about the guns and ammos used? It might disable a soldier when it hits its arms, shoulder, knee. Well, not to mention it might kill. Why not ban War?
    I can’t understand they have a treaty or laws about war! Ok, you can’t do this or that. how about you can’t make WAR??? Stupidity in a loadasheet!

  27. Koi Yujo on May 17, 2022 at 7:16 pm

    It’s very important that machines are still controlled and decided by humans but some might not wanna do that and it’s very dangerous

  28. Mark Brisec on May 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    So Skynet is coming online soon. I hope Sarah Connor and "Paps" are ready…

  29. Crawford Smith on May 17, 2022 at 7:17 pm

    Autotomous weapons ? Did you guys say autonomous weapons ?
    I’ve had a stroke e.
    Did you guys use the phrase : "autonomous weapons" ?
    Sometimes I get confused . Autonomous weapons , right ?

    Warfare Ain’t Where We Supposed To Put The Money Man, I Believe In Peace Bro

  31. I3ORG HARVEY on May 17, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    There should be an area where two countries can go to war with there toys with no human loss where winner takes all, humans at the top just want us to kill each other.

  32. Андреич on May 17, 2022 at 7:21 pm

    this has already happend. The Russian President seems to be being controlled by his AI and Europe is enjoying the results

  33. Crawford Smith on May 17, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    It’s late 2022 , AD , and , about 4 or 5 German states are in revolt against the federal government, …

    What AI weapons have to do with climate change? ??? Climate change is a big lie

  35. csbened16 on May 17, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    It’s ok. Wellcome our new robot AI overlords.

  36. Алексей Пупкин on May 17, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    And why there is lack of trust mb cause every time US sign treaty they break it whenever they want.

  37. quellenathanar on May 17, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Technology is a tool used to fight wars. Wars are and likely will be fought for the same reasons they are now. Perhaps 1 day it will be autonomous attack weapons vs. autonomous defensive systems…and there are only machines that have to die. Technology doesn’t have to lead to dystopia. It’s all a matter of how it’s deployed. Wars have been fought as far back as recorded history allows us to look. The military-industrial complex isn’t the driver of wars. if we could magically take away the profit made from war machines, the wars are still going to happen as they always have.

    We should survive from Earth
    Not eachother sillies

  40. Gooner 72 on May 17, 2022 at 7:26 pm

    Mmmmmmmm……..anyone else remember the original Terminator film from 1984? It had a fictional Skynet defence system that controlled everything but now we face it for real…..
    These weapons are extremely dangerous as they work on their own decisions, not ours.

    Don’t worry , I am not like Joe Biden.

  43. Vijaykumar Nadaraja on May 17, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Germany did develop a loitering weapon a couple of years ago. It was developed by Rhinemettal Defence. I think it was called the KZO.

  44. JustKeith on May 17, 2022 at 7:31 pm

    Sad, but I think a political ban is hopeless.

  45. erika banzhaf on May 17, 2022 at 7:32 pm

    Another problem with drones is that they can cheaply and easily go into mountains and forests where people go to get away from wars.

  46. Steven Hom on May 17, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    To follow Up there will be autonomous Under Water Mini Submarines Hundreds of tiny autonomous Armed submarines can Attack and entire Cargo Carrying Supply Ships

    The danger is in the belief that warfare is the solution to disagreements and meditation the answer to mental issues!
