Answer text

Autonomous weapons, especially a nuclear arsenal, being used by an AI is a concern, but this seems downstream of the central problem of giving an unaligned AI any capabilities to impact the world.

Triggering nuclear war is only one of many ways a power seeking AI might choose to take control. This seems unlikely, as resources the AI would want to control (or the AI itself) would likely be destroyed in the process.
