Robot War: It's Coming
What a stupid, fear mongering article and that Sharkey guy is a faggot. It's surprising that terrorists are using suicide bombs instead of stealing US robots and reverse engineering them? Is it really?
If it's coming.....
How long before "the guy" isn't needed?
Dude, I heard people talking the Columbia crash was because terrorists shot it down with a SAM.
People have both way overblown ideas on what terrorists are capable of and underestimate them by a loooooong margin.
They have technical capabilities, but their technical capabilities come to a very, very, very narrow point. Whereas all the guys who directly use demo charges and the like in the US military actually KNOW what they're doing, 99% of the terrorists who blow themselves up with demo charges are simply given them by someone else who prepares it for them. And even then, the people doing the prep work tend to be sloppy.
Meanwhile, they're willingness to do horrible things is waaaaaaaaay underestimated by many.
Bring on the robots. I'm ready for an old fashioned a-poccy-lips.
Skynet is now online...
In the future, there will be robots.
i will get started on one right away
Rise of the machine: Terminator-style robot war 'could be a reality within 10 years'

Robot soldiers that can decide who to attack will soon be roaming the world's battlefields if something isn't done about the global 'robot arms race'.
That is the stark warning from a leading robotics expert who spoke today of the dangers of allowing increasingly sophisticated robots to make decisions of life and death.
Professor Noel Sharkey, a robotics and artificial intelligent expert from the University of Sheffield, also warned that armed robots could soon become terrorists' weapon of choice. Scroll down for more....
This Israeli military robot, the VIPeR can climb stairs and open fire on targets with a submachine gun
"The trouble is that we can't really put the genie back in the bottle,” said Professor Starkey.
“Once the new weapons are out there, they will be fairly easy to copy. How long is it going to be before the terrorists get in on the act?"
Over 4,000 robots are currently deployed on the ground in Iraq and by October 2006 unmanned aircraft had flown 400,000 flight hours. At the moment, humans can make the decision whether to attack or not but a recent policy shift in the U.S means that 'intelligent' autonomous attack robots will soon be given the power to decide who and when to kill

U.S soldiers operate an unmanned drone aircraft. An increasing amount of funding is being spent on military robotics
In his keynote speech at a conference organised by the Royal United Services Institute, a military thinktank, Sharkey warned: "There's a massive drive towards developing autonomous robots for more complex missions.
Bring it on. After I shoot up the first one I see I'm going to fuck it's turret. Let it know who's boss.
will time travel also be possible?
And that sharkey guy is still a fear-mongering cunt.
What a fucking idiot.
Terrorists don't have the wherewithal to produce their own cars to put carbombs in- they have to buy them from countries that actually produce them. Fuck, the countries most of these retards are from can't produce cars or equipment- they buy them from countries that have real economies.
These are going to be military AIs. They're going to have so many fucking safeguards and controls on them that terrorists aren't going to know what to do with them.
The technical skills of terrorist organizations comes to a very, very sharp point, and that point is not terribly high. They've got MAYBE a few dozen people to handle website design and video embedding for fuck's sake, and the people they have on that aren't exactly at the top of the game.
Shit, I've got a cousin-in-law who's working on the AIs for the Navy's new autonomous robot subs. Dude is seriously at the top of the computer programming game, brilliant as all get-out, and he's part of a HUUUUUGE team putting this stuff together.
Meanwhile, these camel fuckers would be lucky if they could assemble an RC tank from the instructions in the fucking box.
Actually, fuck this entire theory. If there ever is a Skynet type of uber-machine it isn't going to produce Terminator style robots. It will create nano-bots or as small a robot as it can. That would be far more efficient, cost effective, and harder to stop. Plus it damn sure wouldn't be stupid enough to mass produce lasers. It would stick with the standard metal bullet. This way it can still kill humans easily but not it's own troops. No worries about friendly fire either.
Asimov's Laws of Robotics, along with a hard-wired imperative that any robot building machine puts the Laws into every robot it builds. Problem solved.
People are driven to kill other people. It's always been this way and it will never change. Asimov's law goes out the window when war is afoot. Killing the enemy is far more important than the risk of an errant AI occurence.
Robin Williamsbot would never hurt us. He's so loveable.
Weren't we supposed to have flying cars in 2000?
Here is one of these killing machines now…
To Give Equal time:
Robot pants or smoke pants? That is the question.
And the terrorist don't have enough savvy to program Pong, for Christ's sake. I don't think we need to worry about Ocyber bin Laden any time soon.
Robots in wars will never happen. Know why? Because war is based on 2 sides with a different stance. We think "this," you think "that." Your stance isn't being threatened when all they're doing is destroying your non living robots with their non living robots.
If wars involving robots did happen, the opposing countries may as well settle their differences on a game of "Risk." Human loss is what makes a war a war. Just my thoughts anyways. My .02 cents as I like to put it.
But they will be used against people as well. They are already talking about making a large force of robots to send into the caves of Afghanistan to flush out the savages like sticking a garden hose in a gopher hole.
But if you guard the people with robots, you would have robots fighting robots. So basically, the country that can produce the most robots wins. And where do they manufacture these robots? Taiwan? INVADE TAIWAN!!!!! Politics goes around in cirlces.
