Elon Musk leads 116 experts calling for outright ban of killer robots

Tesla's Elon Musk and Alphabet's Mustafa Suleyman are leading a group of 116 specialists from across 26 countries who are calling for the ban on autonomous weapons. These can be weapons of terror, weapons that despots and terrorists use against innocent populations, and weapons hacked to behave in undesirable ways. Experts have previously warned that AI technology has reached a point where the deployment of autonomous weapons is feasible within years, rather than decades. While AI can be used to make the battlefield a safer place for military personnel, experts fear that offensive weapons that operate on their own would lower the threshold of going to battle and result in greater loss of human life. The founders call for "Morally wrong" lethal autonomous weapons systems to be added to the list of weapons banned under the UN's convention on certain conventional weapons brought into force in 1983, which includes chemical and intentionally blinding laser weapons. Ryan Gariepy, the founder of Clearpath Robotics said: "Unlike other potential manifestations of AI which still remain in the realm of science fiction, autonomous weapons systems are on the cusp of development right now and have a very real potential to cause significant harm to innocent people along with global instability." The UK government opposed such a ban on lethal autonomous weapons in 2015, with the Foreign Office stating that "International humanitarian law already provides sufficient regulation for this area". While the suggestion of killer robots conjures images from science fiction such as the Terminator's T-800 or Robocop's ED-209, lethal autonomous weapons are already in use.

Zeiss VR One Connect puts virtual reality PC games onto a smartphone headset

Zeiss, a company that made its name in optical and optoelectronic technology before moving into the realm of virtual reality, has announced its latest VR headset: the Zeiss VR One Connect at IFA 2017 in Berlin. The Zeiss VR One Connect promises to bridge the gap between PC virtual reality, which offers impressive visuals and complex games, but comes with a high price tag for expensive headsets such as the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift, and smartphone-powered VR, which costs a lot less, but doesn't quite offer the immersive experience of PC VR. Zeiss VR One Connect does this by running SteamVR games that are powered by a PC, which does all the graphical grunt work, and transmitting the footage to the headset, using your smartphone as a screen. The headset, with the smartphone slotted in, is connected to your PC via a USB cable, and the Zeiss VR One Connect uses the smartphone's built-in motion sensors to provide head tracking. The Zeiss VR One Connect system is compatible with many budget smartphone VR headsets, or you can use it with the Zeiss VR One, potentially keeping the entry price very low. First of all, by controlling games using the 3DoF controllers, which send information to your smartphone, which then combines that data with information from its own motion sensors, before sending instructions to your PC, it could add an element of lag, which could make playing VR games difficult - or even nauseating. If you already have a suitable smartphone and PC, then the Zeiss VR One Connect promises to be a very cheap way to get into VR gaming. Releasing at the end of 2017, the Zeiss VR One Connect, which comes with two wireless controllers and a USB cable, along with the required software, will cost $129. A bundle which includes the Zeiss VR One Plus headset will also be sold for $199. While we do have doubts, there is a lot of potential here, so we're looking forward to getting some hands on time with it to see if the Zeiss VR One Connect lives up to its promises.
