I don’t like the idea of autonomous weapons nor of our biggest tech company working so closely with the military but if you look at it from Google’s point of view, it might be a case of “if we don’t build this then someone else will and at least this way we’ll have control over it”. Weaponry is a necessary evil to any country. Without it, we’d be susceptible to being ruled by those who do have it. It’s a complex, multi-faceted issue. Thanks for the read.
