Former US Deputy Secretary of Defense Names Possible Cause of Nuclear War

Former U.S. Under Secretary of Defense Robert Work said the military’s danger of using artificial intelligence systems is its involvement in the decision to launch a nuclear strike.

According to him, such systems should not take part in the control of nuclear weapons.

He explained that artificial intelligence can perceive non-hazardous factors as a threat and make the wrong decision.

In this regard, he mentioned the Russian Perimeter system, which could take seismic activity for nuclear explosions and then launch intercontinental ballistic missiles.

Work concluded that artificial intelligence can be used by the military, but to a limited extent, to avoid a “catastrophic scenario.”

Previously, scientists talked about the consequences of a possible nuclear war between Russia and the United States.
