> An autonomous drone may have hunted down and attacked humans without input from human commanders, a recent UN report has revealed. As well as being the first time such an attack by artificial intelligence (AI) has taken place on humans, it’s unclear whether the drone may have killed people during the attack which took place in Libya in March 2020. “We don’t know if that really happened but we desperately need clicks”


>”Units were neither trained nor motivated to defend against the effective use of this new technology and usually retreated in disarray,” the report reads. “Once in retreat, they were subject to continual harassment from the unmanned combat aerial vehicles and lethal autonomous weapons systems, which were proving to be a highly effective combination.” Reminds me of this. >Kyle Reese: Listen. Understand. That Terminator is out there. It can’t be reasoned with, it can’t be bargained with…it doesn’t feel pity of remorse or fear…and it absolutely will not stop.Ever. Until you are dead.


Sounds like someone fucked up and tried to blame it on machine error.


Using algorithms that way should constitute a war crime.


Yeah… that’s not terrifying at all.
