    Defense companies now making killer robots

    Defense companies now making killer robots

    As defense attorneys often say when arguing that their client's rights were violated, such as in a search warrant, you can't un-ring the bell. Now that defense firms are building autonomous killer robots (Russian firms have started) it isn't going to stop.

    Killer robots, or lethal autonomous weapons systems, are designed to make life-or-death decisions on their own, without human control. It’s a worrying leap that’s been called the “third revolution in warfare,” after gunpowder and the atomic bomb. Both activists and military leaders have called for international regulations to govern these weapons, or even ban them outright, but key governments—like the United States and Russia—have so far resisted.

    This is very dangerous:

    “As long as states haven’t agreed to collectively come up with some kind of regulatory regime, or ideally, a preemptive ban, the fear is very real that companies will be crossing this plane and will develop and produce and eventually field weapons that lack sufficient human control,” the report’s author, Frank Slijper, told Quartz.

    This had to come and its the future, countries will use robots to control their citizens, break up riots etc.

    Im glad I wont be here when its finally in full swing, I dont want to live like they did in the sci fi books I read when I was a kid 60 yrs ago.
    ALL LIVES MATTER..my life your life, our childrens lives, all childrens lives. To try and make it only SOME lives matter, divides us and fosters hatred and violence.
