A US official is urging China and Russia to give only humans, not AI, control over nuclear weapons

A senior U.S. official on Thursday urged China and Russia to match statements by the United States and others that only humans, and never artificial intelligence, would make decisions about deploying nuclear weapons.

State Department arms control official Paul Dean told an online briefing that Washington had made a “clear and firm commitment” that humans would have full control over nuclear weapons, adding that France and Britain had done the same.

“We would welcome a similar statement from China and the Russian Federation,” said Dean, deputy assistant secretary at the Bureau of Arms Control, Deterrence and Stability.
