China’s brightest children are being recruited to develop AI ‘killer bots’ | South China Morning Post

The 27 boys and four girls, all aged 18 and under, were selected for the four-year “experimental programme for intelligent weapons systems” at the Beijing Institute of Technology (BIT) from more than 5,000 candidates, the school said on its website.

The BIT is one of the country’s top weapons research institutes, and the launch of the new programme is evidence of the weight it places on the development of AI technology for military use.

No sex equality rubbish, I see. I'll bet they didn't bother with any "diversity" crap either.

China presumably has access not only to its own work but to any work performed in the USA (and perhaps elsewhere) too. A cheery thought. And none of their budget will be wasted on helping employees transition gender.
