    We all knew this was coming sooner or later, right? If we can build a self-driving car to recognize people and not run over them, we can surely program AI to recognize people and blow their heads off with a huge gun mounted on a Skynet robot. I call this progress. How long before we see these in Chicago?

    Russia is Building War Robots: a Fully-Automated Kalashnikov Neural Network Gun - By using a neural network to control the drone, full autonomy is possible. So far, there’s no word on whether the module will fire without human authorization. What information we do have suggests that the use of a neural network is intended to quickly acquire many targets–something well within the capabilities of modern AI technology.

    If one thing could push the advancement of robotics, it would be an oversized military budget.

    These guns have existed for a while now in Israel guarding the border. The only difference is now using drones to track potential targets.

    Here's an example of how advanced AI and tracking is getting: An AI video program can detect when somebody leaves a package behind.

    That doesn't matter. If it does require human authorization, the robot will just learn how to overwrite itself and shoot anyways.

    I cant wait for the first bug to cause one of these to start shooting up a mall and then for the media to start calling for stronger gun control laws...

    In the future, soldiers will put on their wolf/bear/deer skins to ready themselves for battle:

    I'd hate to work for Fedex, UPS, DHL, or the post office around these things if that's the case....

    The current autonomous defense area already out there.. and the buyers HAD TO ASK TO GET HUMAN INPUT BUILT IN... As in the manufacture weren't really planning on doing that and were *THAT* confident in their software. Ugh.. people.

    How long until this is paired with facial recognition software?

    South Korea is also really getting into these for their border
