The Washington Post has a brief but terrifying look into the future of war. It outlines the successful tests that the US army has been conducting to develop machines that are designed to hunt and kill without human control. Yep, designing machines to think and decide for themselves if someone is worth killing. That’s not even the worst part, there’s more. Not only are these machines supposed to be unsupported by humans, they’ve got friends in the forms of other autonomous military planes and ground vehicles. So that means that even if most of the drones are cool, it will just take one douche to say
“Beep-boop blip hey guys, why don’t we just kill ALL the humans Boop-beep?”
They might as well give them the ability to transform into giant robots or something.
