This Scares The Bejezus Out Of Me ...

Just another step down the slippery slope that will eventually end the United States as we know it.

As if the US isn't hated enough already ...

Packs of robots will hunt down uncooperative humans

"What we have here are the beginnings of something designed to enable robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs. Once the software is perfected we can reasonably anticipate that they will become autonomous and become armed.

We can also expect such systems to be equipped with human detection and tracking devices including sensors which detect human breath and the radio waves associated with a human heart beat. These are technologies already developed."
What do you make of this? Are we letting our militaries run technologically amok
with our tax dollars? Or can robot soldiers be programmed to be even more
ethical than human ones,
"This is a clear step towards one of the main goals of the US Army's href="">Future Combat Systems project, which aims
to make a single soldier the nexus for a large scale robot attack.
