Event description

Description

Interested in the discussion on tech for good and responsible uses of artificial intelligence and robotics? Join us on November 14, 6-8 pm and hear Ryan Gariepy speak about the issues of autonomous weapons and the need for an international treaty banning these weapons systems. Ryan is the Chief Technology Officer of Clearpath Robotics and Otto Motors.

Did you know? In 2014, Clearpath Robotics became the world's first robotics company to pledge not to make 'Killer Robots'!

As Ryan has stated, "We should not lose sight of the fact that, unlike other potential manifestations of AI which still remain in the realm of science fiction, autonomous weapons systems are on the cusp of development right now and have a very real potential to cause significant harm to innocent people along with global instability. The development of lethal autonomous weapons systems is unwise, unethical and should be banned on an international scale."

We could not agree more! Hope you can make it!
