Will Provide the Best Technology to the United States Military
This country as has always relied on having the best access to technology, certainly the best technology that American companies make. We want this country, especially the people who serve this country to know that we at Microsoft have their back. We will provide the best technology to the United States military.
We’ll Be Engaged But We’ll Be Engaged As a Civic Participant
We have also said that we recognize the questions and at times the issues and concerns that people are asking about the future. We see artificial intelligence entering the world of the militaries around the world where people are asking questions about things like autonomous weapons. We’ll be engaged but we’ll be engaged as a civic participant.
We Just Need To Move Forward Into This New Age
We’ll use our voice, we’ll work with people, we’ll work with the military to address these issues in a way that will show the public that we live in a country where the US military has always honored the importance of a strong code of ethics. We just need to move that forward into this new age.
