The Race for AI Militarization
This is a frightening look at the accelerating race between China, Russia and the US in militarizing the race for dominance in artificial intelligence. One of the key things to focus on here are the thresholds for decision automation.

Protocols around the handoff of decision making to automated systems should be the focus of new arms talks, but the inherent challenges of verification will make for difficult terrain.
