Three months hence (at the time of this writing), Chenxi Wang's superlative presentation detailing trust in an artificial intelligence epoch is still highly apropos, I reckon.
Interestingly written reportage - crafted by Matt Stroud (Matt is a reporter employed by The Center for Public Integrity) for The Verge, divulges little of the loathing of AI at the United States Department of Defence, but, little is all that's required to grok the problematic view of artificial intelligence and warfighting. Ladies and Gentlemen, We are in a AI Gap!

"Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently fought over whether artificial intelligence (AI) posed an existential threat to humanity. Musk made the case AI machines could eventually become self-aware and dispose of their human masters, like in the movie Ex Machina, whereas Zuckerberg argued humanity had nothing to fear." via a blog posting written by Adam Segal for the Council on Foreign Relations
