    It's Happening: Drones Will Soon Be Able to Decide Who to Kill

    Whereas current military drones are still controlled by people, this new technology will decide who to kill with almost no human involvement.

    Once complete, these drones will represent the ultimate militarisation of AI and trigger vast legal and ethical implications for wider society.
    No kidding. Science fiction is about to become science fact. Can you imagine the implications of this new technology?

    One human looks no different than any other. Unless some sort of signature is imputed into the program by a human before hand...there is no way that can happen.

    Even a human pilot has to have more information about the target than just visual.

    This sound like the crap the military would say about the coming "star wars" missile defense technology.

    35 years later that shit still does not work.

    In some areas that may be true....be afraid of the humans.

    Next step: miniaturization. Why does an unmanned aircraft have to be so big? Imagine drones the size of birds going around and killing whoever their makers thought should be killed. Assassination would become so easy anyone could do it.

    Because they carry big bombs/missiles, and lots of fuel.

    A drone the size of birds ain't gonna get off the ground carry those weapons.

    And wouldn't be able to loiter over a target for up to 40 hours at a time, like some of our drones can.

    But, yes, the micro drones are gonna be getting more popular and will do more things in the future...

    If you're targeting only a few people, you don't need those heavy bombs and missiles, only a small firearm... not sure whether you'd call it a rifle or a pistol, more likely one specifically designed to be carried by a small drone. Such a device could follow a victim just about anywhere, there would be no escaping it and no way to detect it in time to avoid it.
