It took over 10 years to bring at least some justice to the killers of Pan Am 103. I hope it will take less time to accomplish the same for MH 17.

Elon Musk Urges U.S. Governors to Regulate AI Before “It’s Too Late.”

But he may struggle to get his way without hard evidence of what, exactly, needs regulating.

Speaking at the National Governors Association meeting in Rhode Island on Saturday, Musk called AI “the biggest risk that we face as a civilization,” according to the Wall Street Journal. That’s a sentiment shared by a small but influential crowd of techno-thinkers.

“Until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don’t know how to react because it seems so ethereal. AI is a rare case where I think we need to be proactive in regulation instead of reactive. Because I think by the time we are reactive in AI regulation, it’s too late.”

Back in the 1970s, biologists managed to deal with a somewhat similar problem (Recombinant DNA) through voluntary refusal to create bio chimeras. I don't think computer scientist have the same level of moral commitment to the fate of the humanity.
