The Pentagon aims to develop 'ethical' robot soldiers, unlike the indiscriminate T-800 killers from the Terminator films

The government is going to do something "ethical".

Talk is cheap because supply exceeds demand!

you shouldn't be, it just means they are going to spend millions, correction, billions of dollars.

What surprises me is they didn't approach some of their currently contracted US robotic developers, which in my opinion are the best in the world.






the end is the best part - 1:40

Is scary. An "ethical war?" No, the human element should never be taken out of war as it should be so terrible and evil that humanity tries to avoid it, not to let legions of robots into the battlefield.

Something they're not thinking about is, what happens when one of these bots get captured and reprogrammed and turned on us?

And this is the stupid shit that will doom us all. War isn't a video game, ethical or bloodless. If WW2 was fought with ethics, we'd still be fighting it today, or worse, conquered. The meaning of war is to impose your will on your enemy, to break thier backs and thier will to fight. There is no way to do this ethically.

Newbies, please watch THIS before posting.
