Killer robots in Plato’s Cave: Semi-autonomous and on their own | Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

curated by | April 13, 2015

“Other than target selection, semi-autonomous weapons are allowed to have every technical capability that a fully autonomous weapon might have, including the ability to seek, detect, identify and prioritize potential targets, and to engage selected targets with gunfire or a homing missile. Selection can even be done before the weapon begins to seek; in other words, it can be sent on a hunting mission. Given this, it would seem important to be clear about whatever is left that the human operator must do.”
