Another terrifying development at the nexus of autonomous weapon systems and artificial intelligence. Korea announced that it’s developing a system that,
would search for and eliminate targets without human control, are called the third revolution in the battleground after gunpowder and nuclear weapons.
Such weapons would include an AI-based missile that can control its speed and altitude on its own and detect an enemy radar fence in real time while in flight. AI-equipped unmanned submarines and armed quadcopters would also be among autonomous arms.
Every time Boston Dynamics publishes a new video showing the latest features on its killer robots we all laugh nervously about Skynet and our new overlords but the shit is getting real.
