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.
