    Boston Dynamics, makers of the world’s scariest horror droids, has revealed plans to build 1,000 Spotmini machines every single year starting from 2019.

    Who needs a hungry pet dog to get the remote control, and chase burgulars when you have a Spotmini dog.

    Killer squirrel bots become self-aware when Squirrelnet launches. Squirrelapocalypse Now.

    * People seen running around screaming until one says "ooh look …..a squirrel" then all hell breaks out. However. no need to panic as to the rescue comes the remote controlled pine marten squadron, and they only want to take the squirrels down for dinner.

    And then there be "slaughterbots." Viewing our dystopian future with killer drones powered by artificial intelligence.

    "Artificial intelligence researchers from nearly 30 countries are boycotting a South Korean university over concerns a new lab in partnership with a leading defence company could lead to “killer robots”.

    Underwater killer robots may evolve, beyond torpedo AI technology, especially with increased Military Industrial Complex spending.

    The world’s deadliest torpedoes:
    The Mk48 ADCAP Mod 7 Common Broadband Advanced Sonar System (CBASS) developed by Lockheed Martin uses active and/or passive homing, broadband sonar guidance and advanced counter-countermeasures to detect, track and engage targets in deep and shallow waters.

    The Department of Defense’s Unmanned Systems Roadmap: 2007-2032 provides additional reasons for pursuing autonomous weapons systems. It's rapidly developing.

    autonomous weapons would be safer than the loonies with assault rifles I feel but personally I would not like to meet any thing human or otherwise that is carrying a firearm.

    “Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology has reached a point where the deployment of such systems is—practically if not legally—feasible within years, not decades, and the stakes are high: autonomous weapons have been described as the third revolution in warfare, after gunpowder and nuclear arms.”

    I served in the military and I really would like us to step back a bit and rethink this scenario.
