The East and West have differing views on the morality of artificial intelligence AI and robotics technology. Eastern culture sees artificial intelligence as an economic savior capable of improving their society. In contrast, Western culture regards artificial intelligence with paranoia, anxiety, and skepticism. As Eastern nations begin to use artificial intelligence to develop and field Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems LAWS, they will leave the West at an insurmountable military disadvantage. Western nations insistence on keeping humans in control of warfare and their self-imposed moral ban on Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems leave their armies vulnerable to sustaining mass casualties in future wars. The United States must start developing Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems to maintain its military superiority.
