We need an international agreement to prevent the development of autonomous weapons before they threaten global security

Fascinating topic! There are a lot of people who would be pleased to meet "Data", but not "The Terminator"! Thanks for an interesting article, Darren!

I too am against drones.
And this, who would have ever thought this might be a reality one day.
Thank you Darren.

No destruction can lead to construction

Once the genie is out of the lamp, there's no putting him back. However, you can do your best to make sure he performs only benevolent actions.

The only reason man would continue to construct weapons is clearly fear, man needs to control his fear, not what he/she is afraid of...

Recruitment for human cannon fodder must be down. I am amazed at how many people are chomping at the bit to develop weaponry it for the challenge, the money, the ego...certainly not out of a sense of caring for humanity.

If we have the opportunity to create a world in which autonomous weapons are banned, and those who might use them are stigmatized and held accountable, do we not have a moral obligation to work toward such a world?
Thank You Darren, noted.
(Maybe a little off subject, but earlier this week a dron dropped a bunch of drugs into where the prisoners get their breaks and a very huge fight ensued).

Do you watch "Humans" on AMC? Interesting stuff..a cross between DATA & Terminator, free-range AI's?! ;) Drones are robots, but not self-guided (yet)..Cars kill more than drones, if we're bashing machines..;) But, yes, Asimov's Laws need to be integrated into any future robots, etc.
