Israel unfolded AI-armed for refugees camp
The Israeli army launched weapons with artificial intelligence on a guard tower aimed at the al-Aruba refugees camp on the western bank of the Jordan River. This is written by Euronews.
The 19-year-old camp of the camp Kamal Abu Hishesh fears that an autonomous system with the function of supporting the goal can harm children.
“[Weapons] is very fast, even faster than soldiers […]. The grenades with tear gas produced by him can reach the end of the camp. I saw this several times, ”he said.
The developer of the Smart Shooter system said that the purpose of autonomous weapons is to protect soldiers and civilians by increasing the accuracy of getting into the desired goal.
“Usually the terrorist is among people whom we do not want to harm. We allow the soldier to view the fire control system so that he can make sure the legality of the affected goal, ”said Mikhal Moro CEO of the company.
She added that the gun accompanies the goal only by decision of a person. AI does not determine on his own who to shoot at, but who is not:
“None of the random passers -by can be affected by a weapon.”.
The Israeli army said that autonomous guns are regulated by law. They recalled that they do not use combat cartridges. Soldiers can only use tear gas, light -shiman grenades and spongy bullets.
Human rights activists have expressed concern about the “digital dehumanization of weapons systems”.
“When you combine a technology that eliminates the human judgment necessary for the police, a difficult situation arises in accordance with international law,” said Omar Shakir, director of Human Rights Watch and Palestine.
Recall that in September it became known that the Israeli army deployed a Jay Tour in one of the checkpoints in Hebron (West Bank of the Jordan River).
