More than 100 high-profile figures in robotics, including tech entrepreneur Elon Musk, have urged the United Nations to impose a sweeping ban on the use of artificial intelligence in development and management of weaponry.

In a letter by the 116 experts, the fraternity has raised an alarm that the “killer robots” could usher in “a third revolution in warfare,” opening up a “Pandora’s box,” writes the BBC.

The experts believe that the pace and scale of destruction caused by “morally wrong” lethal autonomous weapons would be unprecedented and incomprehensible by humans, notes The Guardian.
