“Business Highlights” – The Washington Post

Washington Post, March 1, 2021 – “An artificial intelligence commission led by Google’s former CEO told Congress on Monday that the U.S. must boost its AI skills to counter China, including by pursuing “AI-enabled” weapons. Google’s ex-CEO Eric Schmidt and current executives from Google, Microsoft, Oracle and Amazon are among the 15 members of the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, which released its final report Monday. The report says that machines that can “perceive, decide, and act more quickly” than humans and with more accuracy are going to be deployed for military purposes — with or without the involvement of the U.S. and other democracies.”
