A Future For Drones: Automated Killing

Recommended Posts

One day people will start to ask the question 'should we' instead of 'can we'.

Autonomous machines of destruction. Which brainiac actually thought this isn't going to end in tears.

No accountability or personal responsibility.

We regret your son was killed during the attack of the clone robots on the airbase. Collateral damage is always a consideration of the <insert regime> goverrment.

We will fully investigate if there was any malfunction in unit T1000 as part of standard operating procedure.

There is nothing new in the concept of the minefield. All that changed is that the mines move. Flying drones will be used to deny airspace to the enemy. Terrestrial drones deny land to anyone entering. There is no need to distinguish friend from foe when constructing a minefield.

Plenty of innocent victims to mines.

If the enemy thinks you will not kill civilians, they will put them in every building and strap them on the front of their tanks.

I’ve watched that Rise of the Apes recently that comes out on Monday! Anyway, it seems that whatever we suppress and abuse is going to rise up and destroy us.

I think there is a niche for an Apes v Technology v Killer Tomato’s movie somewhere, maybe with Predator and Alien thrown in too, and possibly Robocop as well.

We're not talking about a passive minefield. This is automated murder, out of sight, out of mind. Nothing else.

It's not about denying space to an enemy, it's about mass-murder of people in their own homes, who cannot possibly defend themselves or even take any action to save themselves.

Yep and like mines, the vast majority of drone victims are civilians, not soldiers.

They have limited use against a capable military force. They will remain terror weapons for broken states.

A senior Iranian military official says Iran's Army has downed a remote-controlled reconnaissance drone operated by the US military in the eastern part of the country.

The informed source said on Sunday that the Iranian Army's electronic warfare unit successfully targeted the US-built RQ-170 Sentinel stealth aircraft after it crossed into Iranian airspace over the border with neighboring Afghanistan.

War is an exercise in atrocity. Those who refuse to look at it because it is ugly will fall victim to it. If you can drop a bunch of terminators on an enemy city, or behind their lines, and have them kill everything, you have a weapon. Automated murder is a good thing. It is the most efficient means of winning whilst risking little yourself.

It's not about denying space to an enemy, it's about mass-murder of people in their own homes, who cannot possibly defend themselves or even take any action to save themselves.

It would be a pretty poor weapon if it was easy to defend against. Soldiers are neither fast enough nor accurate enough to compete with robot weapons. Stick your nose out and a robot can calculate how to shoot it off in a thousandth of a second and do so. Battle fields will become far too lethal for any human.

A bunch of self replicating nanobots could wreak havoc without anyone knowing whats going on (unless they also had detectors and nanobots to combat them). You just have to drop a seed bot and wait.
