Scientists campaign to ban lethal robots production

28 countries sign up to ban on developing robots that could kill humans but some states are choosing to opt out.

Scientists and activists are calling for a ban on making robots that could kill humans, which some tech companies are racing to develop.

But that call hasn’t been met with a blanket “yes”, especially from some players in the Artificial Intelligence industry.

So far, the United States and Russia have resisted signing up to the ban.
