What if: robots go to war?

Postby breckjensen » Thu Dec 07, 2017 12:06 am

Hi,

For years a science fiction staple, robot combatants are moving into the realm of reality.

While drones and other unmanned weapons are already being widely deployed, they are controlled remotely by humans.

Lethal autonomous weapons (LAW) are robots that can select, attack and destroy targets without human intervention.

With remarkable advances in artificial intelligence some experts believe we are years rather than decades away from having this capability.

So significant is this development that it has been called the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms.
