Windows 7: Autonomous Robots

Autonomous Robots

Quote:
The Defense Department is financing studies of autonomous, or self-governing, armed robots that could find and destroy targets on their own. On-board computer programs, not flesh-and-blood people, would decide whether to fire their weapons.

"The pressure of an increasing battlefield tempo is forcing autonomy further and further toward the point of robots making that final, lethal decision," he predicted. "The time available to make the decision to shoot or not to shoot is becoming too short for remote humans to make intelligent informed decisions."

As for all of this research, it's just research. I don't think any of us would like or even allow such a thing to exist, even on a battlefield. The US military already uses remote controlled vehicles and bots.

But setting a bot free with weaponry and its own AI would seriously ruffle the feathers of every human rights group out there! The military can research all they want -- I support that -- because research can spur other interesting and useful inventions/technologies that have little to do with the original goal.

Dave, I feel much better. Why don't you take a stress pill and think things over?
