Automated machines programmed to kill will enter service in the US in the nearest ten years. The Pentagon top officials believe that it will allow the US not to be behind Russia and China militarily.
As the Christian Science Monitor noted, creation of such machines is quite risky, as artificial intelligence may run out of control any moment. However, in modern wars agility is above all, and human factor in operation of the killer robots may seriously impede decision-making.
Now there is controversy in the Pentagon on how much liberty should be given to the machines to take decisions. "We have to be very careful that we don't design [autonomous] systems in a way that we can create a situation where those systems actually absolve humans of the decision", General Selva noted. He also added that "The notion of a completely robotic system that can make a decision about whether or not to inflict harm on an adversary is here. It's not terribly refined, not terribly good. But it's here."
The Pentagon justifies its development with the statement that Russia and China allegedly also design 'fast-moving, fully-autonomous killing systems'. Thus, the US will make robots 'not to use them', but to know how they work and how to counter them.
The aggravation of the relationship between Russia and the USA that started unfolding during the presidency of Barack Obama has evolved into a real war during the arrival of Donald Trump. The United States has conducted a series of powerful attacks on Russia in the economic field. However, it is the EU that poses the biggest threat for the US
So some film producer called Weinstein has been abandoned by family and friends, and company, forced into therapy with shrinks as women come flying out of the floorboards from thirty years ago claiming they were raped in hotel rooms. So let's get this sex thing straight and let's put things into context. And ask how far up the line this will go.
