Well fuckles. Time to invest in EMP grenades I guess.
We live in a corporatocracy.
Yep, this will end well, as no computer has ever been hacked.
The code of conduct should just say No you can not make this
The US military industrial complex will most likely lead the killer robot industry… if Bezos or Musk don’t beat them to it, that is.
The only way to defend yourself against a bad killer robot is the have your own good killer robot. It’s in the constitution or something.
It’s my God damned Constitutional right to build and operate the machines that will kill us all.
Hmmmm. Its almost like they have a vested interest in this or something.
I don’t think “Killer Robots” is an appropriate term here. Banning the use of automated, lethal machines just makes sense.
Great…well I just need to build a plasma rifle in the 40 watt range to fight the robots…or watch Dr who episodes with killer robots in them…
Basic guide on killer robots for the non initiated. These types tend to get described interchangeably in articles but are very different.
Big ones: Reaper/ predator. Used for assassination but cost tens of millions of dollars. Piloted by multiple people at all times. Useless in times of war as they can be easily shot down by opposing air defences. Risk to civilians limited by high cost.
Medium ones. Harop / Valkryrie. Think re usable cruise missile. Big enough to kamikaze into missile launcher / jam radar but small and nimble enough that it costs more to shoot down with misses than it costs to build. Used to overwhelm enemy air defenses. Mostly autonomous. Risk to civilians low as they mainly go after air defenses.
Small ones. Rotem L / Switchblade. Carried and used by individual soldiers to attack individuals from a few miles away. Risk to civilians is massive depending how cheap and automated they get.
Duh. If they outlawed killer robots, the military would have to get rid of their killer robots.
