Martin Schoen Posted 9 months ago Daniel Suarez: The kill decision shouldn't belong to a robot I can not help - I can not understand the discussion of "Robots shall not kill". First - nobody should kill human beings. Second - there is a long history of humans killing humans. Unfortunately there is as well a history of cruelties and emotions and hate and revenge. Theres is no significant record of humans hindering kills, or refusing cruel commans of humans (superiors/offices). Beside of this collateral damage is something which took place untile recently - mainly due to human errors. And again beside of this (fear of combat robots) cruelties took place executed by human beings (due to thread, fear or emotions). As longs as nobaody is progamming this robots to fire on civilists/no combatants and as long the friend / foe detection is as good as the smae systems in our combat Ac or our navy ships - it will be a humanisation of modern warfare. Whoever tells something different, e.g. painting the picture of killing robots has no clou of modern warfare. Every navy ship and ever AC is already equipped with sytsms for "anonymous" friend foe discrimination. The robots are only a logical continuation of this way of electronic warfare. No robot has doesn anything ales than human beings or modern automated defens weapons. The only difference will be, that these "Killer Drones" will have a much better system to distinguish freind/fpe and thos drones for sure will not drop weapons in civilists, and those will nior rape women or kills children due to an assumed Therat.
