Robots with guns
How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love our AI Overlords
Remember the movie Short Circuit, where a military robot short circuits and becomes self aware? I loved that movie. It had a good story about what it means to be "alive," but mostly I'm glad we learned our lesson from it about not arming autonomous robot things with shooty gun things.
What's that, you say? Someone HAS created robots for the US Army that carries lethal firepower and works semi-autonomously? And it looks like this?
That, puny fleshlings, is a robot with guns.
Be afraid. Be very afraid.
