The USA will spend $2 billion on artificial intelligence for weapons. This is the most it has ever spent. It wants the most advanced weapons in the world - better than China's and Russia's. The USA wants weapons that will not make mistakes. An official said: "We think we can accelerate two decades of progress into five years."
The new weapons could make their own decisions, without any humans helping. This could mean innocent people being killed. These weapons can already choose targets on their own. Generals do not want to let the weapons decide which targets to attack. The generals want to do this.
