Fresh on the heels of our story yesterday about how scientists are concerned about the coming issues that will surround the notion of computers becoming smarter than human beings; we at the Weekly Constitutional are pleased to bring you the following message:
The US Air Force is claiming that by the year 2047 they will have attack drones capable of making thier own decisions.
Feel free to piss yourself now.
In a report entitled "Unmanned Aircraft Systems Flight Plan 2009-2047", the US Air Force claims that " advances in AI will enable systems to make combat decisions and act within legal and policy constraints without necessarily requiring human input." Neat, huh?
Now for those of you feeling that strange "You have heard this before" feeling, you have. It is what proceeds the self actualizing of Skynet, prompting them to launch an assault against mankind in the Terminator mythology.
I am telling you folks... the more I read about these robots and their superbrians, the more I am starting to worry about all of this shit.
