Rise of the Machines

Post  fatbob5 on Tue Nov 20, 2012 5:00 pm

Fully autonomous robots that decide for themselves when to kill could be developed within 20 to 30 years, or 'even sooner', a report has warned.
Militaries across the world are said to be 'very excited' about machines that could deployed alone in battle, sparing human troops from dangerous situations.
The U.S. is leading development in such 'killer robots', notably unmanned drones often used to attack suspected militants in Pakistan, Yemen and elsewhere..............

I have no problem with Self Aware Robots being created ......

unmanned drones are the future of air combat as the planes will be far more manouvarable and faster than those around today.
America are working on one that will be capable of delivering a warhead anywhere in the world within 1 hour.
so far it keeps disintegrating due to the speeds it fly's but as we know they will eventually get it right

the problem with autonomous robots is someone will eventually hack into them and turn them on their masters.

well... the manufacturers build in suicide components into the PCBs, or countdown timers.
These would need human intervention at given service intervals.....
