Missile carrying drone
(A remote-controlled pilot-less aircraft.)
I came across an article about unmanned aircraft which will fight our future wars. These fighters can fly at speeds that would make a person unconscious due to the tremendous gravitational forces. These planes will not require a cockpit with oxygen and escape hatch. They will be controlled by a human the way drones are now controlled.
What scares me is the ability to manufacture fighters with artificial intelligence.
(The theory and development of computer systems able to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.)
These planes would make decisions and take action on their own without human control. They are called Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS)
Eventually they will be able to outwit their human creators; the way Artificial Intelligence can now beat a human at chess.
Navy X-47 Unmanned Fighter
Can this be fitted with artificial intelligence someday soon?
Here's a video of the Navy X-47 landing and taking off from a moving aircraft carrier.
Here's an example of what we have now. Who knows what else is being kept as a military secret?
Here's what I've read.
The next step:Robot “beyond the loop” the robot decides according to rules it learns or creates itself, the robot strikes, and the robot may or may not bother to let humans know.
