this i'm ashamed able to think feel and kill we have no way of knowing whether the kind of artificial general intelligence needed to create a scene tiant robot like this will ever be possible but here's what we already have sameeh autonomous machines dryers tanks aircraft robots big and small machines that can be wittman ised even programmed to find targets but the final decision of whether to take a life lies with us so-called killer robots fully autonomous weapons that can select and kill without human intervention well they don't exist. here we don't want to see killing outsourced to machines on the battlefield or in policing or in border control an obvious circumstances this is why we call for a preemptive ban on the development production and use of killer robots as soon as possible we already have facial recognition technology to unlock hellfire and they
could be used by a fully autonomous weapon and trying say to identify and then attack a target without a human heavy in the final say but what if it kills the wrong person or the machine malfunctions and continues to hunt and kill long after a conflict has been resolved whose responsibility is it when a fully autonomous weapon gets it wrong so everybody's got their experience with computers not working with barnes and i pads failing. and that's an inconvenience at best imagine that when you have the weapon system which is failing which is failing to turn off killer robots could be hacked and then used by your enemy forces against you and against your population and that they could be programmed to target a popular part of the population to go out there and to seek all military age males . you know her and determined them to be legitimate targets and fire upon them
