Robot army. United States Army's Future Combat Systems Project. Use of artificially intelligent systems in modern warfare. Behind original deployment schedule.

Alex Leveringhaus in What's So Bad About Killer Robots? (Journal of Applied Philosophy, 6 March 2016), questions if engaging a target without supervision by a human operator should be allowed.

Killer robots: Philosophical ethics understood only by a few vs the Military Industrial Complex profits under Trump. I can just imagine who would win.

So, could/should a robot be put on trial for war crimes?

Did movie i-Robot consider robot rights to trial?

Dunno. Just wondering in general in the context of free will.

No.

The human who authorised it , yes.



Both Germany and the US deployed homing torpedos in 1943 so arguably we've had killer robots for quite a while now.

It was slightly based on Asimov's robots series, which were based on a pure fantasy concept.

Real robots are based on programs. Unless you are using certain mathematically provable languages the output of a program can't be guaranteed. So there's a risk factor.

It's not my field, but as AI progresses, at what stage does the machine have choice? Of course the creator 'should' be responsible but if the machine's intelligence reaches a point where it is autonomous?

Passing a Turing Test doesn't prove you're human.

It just means you are more likely to be.

And it has to be a really good Turing Test. Not some crappy web chat AI that is just Eliza with a better dictionary and more hard coded grammar rules.


AI has a very long way to go before it can pretend to be us in open ended tests, and even that doesn't prove it's sentient.

It was that kind of 'robot' I was thinking of but in a military combat context.
