ОТКРЫТОЕ ПИСЬМО К КОНВЕНЦИИ ОРГАНИЗАЦИИ ОБЪЕДИНЕННЫХ НАЦИЙ ОБ УПОТРЕБЛЕНИИ ОПРЕДЕЛЁННОГО ВИДА ОРУЖИЯ

Мы, как компании, развивающие технологии в области искусственного интеллекта и робототехники, понимаем, что эти технологии могут быть использованы для разработки автономного оружия. Именно поэтому мы несём на себе особую ответственность.

Мы тепло приветствуем решения Конференции ООН, касающиеся Конвенции об использовании определённых видов оружия о создании Группы правительственных экспертов (ГПЭ) по системам смертоносных автономных оружий. Многие наши учёные и инженеры жаждут предложить свои технические решения.

Мы рады приветствовать посла Амандипа Сингх Гилла из Индии в качестве председателя ГПЭ. Мы обращаемся к Договаривающимся Сторонам, участвующим в ГПЭ, прилагаем все усилия для того, чтобы предотвратить гонку вооружений. Мы хотим защитить граждан от неправильного использования оружия, тем самым избежать разрушительное воздействие этих технологий. Мы с сожалением сообщаем, что первое заседание ГПЭ, которое должно было начаться сегодня (21 августа 2017 года), было отменено из-за некоторых государств, которые не смогли выплатить финансовые взносы в ООН. Поэтому мы настоятельно призываем Договаривающиеся Стороны приложить как можно больше усилий на первом совещании ГПЭ, которое запланировано на ноябрь.

Смертоносное автономное оружие грозит стать третьей революцией в военном деле. Такое оружие позволит вооруженному конфликту вести борьбу в огромном масштабе. Это может быть самая сокрушительная и быстрая война. Технологии могут стать оружием террора, оружием, которое деспоты и террористы могут использовать против невинного населения. Нам нельзя медлить. Как только ящик Пандоры откроется, закрыть его будет практически невозможно. Именно поэтому мы призываем Договаривающиеся Стороны найти способ защитить нас всех от этой опасности.
