Ever since Artificial Intelligence (AI) began helped military complexes and defence organisations move the dial on automating their military systems there has been an increasing cacophony of voices that are shouting from the roof tops that the time has come to regulate AI – both in civilian life, and in the theatre of war. But, four years down the line from their first planned debate in 2013, and despite calls and open letters from thousands of experts, including Bill Gates, Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking, and even high level “Doomsday simulations,” the United Nations (UN) Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW) committee, a framework treaty that prohibits or restricts certain weapons, still hasn’t had any decent debate on the topic, the most recent one being cancelled because Brazil hadn’t, ostensibly, paid for the meeting room.

While most countries, including China, the UK and the US agree that the use of autonomous “killer robots” and AI’s that take humans out of the “kill chain,” with Russia being the notable exception, we’re still seeing a plethora of new autonomous, “autonomous capable,” and semi-autonomous weapons systems being developed and deployed.
These include, but are not limited to, China’s smart cruise missiles, Russia’s autonomous nuclear submarines and smart hypersonic missiles, and the US’s development of Hunter-Killer drones, autonomous F-35’s and unmanned hypersonic SR-72 reconnaissance planes, autonomous mine hunters and subs and autonomous capable destroyers. To name but a couple.

That said though it’s also interesting, even as the US straps an autonomous capable AI into the heart of its critical systems, that the most powerful, and arguably “worst” use of AI could be Russian. And if it’s real, and with propaganda haze it’s hard to be certain, then it’s the perfect reason why the UN should end its debate with Brazil on who pays for the donuts and get back to debating how to regulate AI in warfare before we pass the point of no return.
Recently I’ve been picking an increasing amount of chatter about a Russian AI system called “Perimeter,” an automatic nuclear control system dubbed “Dead Hand” by the Pentagon that, up until recently, was thought to have been de-activated circa 1995.

However, if it turns out that Perimeter has been re-activated and that it really is now an AI driven system, let alone one based on “Black Box” AI tech that’s been known to spontaneously self-evolve and baffle experts, and in an age where fewer digital systems are safe thanks to a new breed of AI robo-hackers can hack into systems 100 million times faster than humans, then I know a great bunker manufacturer and a vertical farming enthusiast I can recommend to you.

But the system, known as "Perimeter" or “Dead Hand,” may be back and deadlier than ever.
This comes after the Trump administration announced that the United States is withdrawing from the 1987 Intermediate-Range Nuclear Forces Treaty, which eliminated the once-massive American and Russian stockpiles of short- and medium-range missiles. Donald Trump alleges that Russia has violated the treaty by developing and deploying new, prohibited cruise missiles.
This has left Moscow furious and fearful that America will once again, as it did during the Cold War, deploy nuclear missiles in Europe. Because of geographic fate, Russia needs ICBMs launched from Russian soil, or launched from submarines, to strike the continental United States. But shorter-range U.S. missiles based in, say, Germany or Poland could reach the Russian heartland.

There have been cryptic clues over the years that Perimeter still exists. Which illustrates one of the curiosities of this system, which is that the Soviet Union kept its existence secret from the American enemy whom it was supposed to deter.
What is unmistakable is that Perimeter is a fear-based solution. Fear of a U.S. first-strike that would decapitate the Russian leadership before it could give the order to retaliate. Fear that a Russian leader might lose his nerve and not give the order.
And if Russia is now discussing Perimeter publicly, that’s reason for the rest of us to worry.

I wish they would grow up.
Reptilian basic minded fools.

Having a dick swinging contest with the peoples hard earned money.
Except they are missiles and it is the people who suffer while these pricks are safe in their mansions eating caviar and molesting children.
