A future with pre-programmed automated flying drones which never need to land except for maintenance could result in a dystopian reality for humanity if manipulated by the military industrial complex.
The use of swarm algorithms in relation to autonomous drone fleets, when taken in concert with substantial advances in AI capabilities, has the potential to make the unimaginable a reality.
While the creation of a more efficient means of charging a fleet of drones seems on the surface a simple way to streamline the technology, the long-term implications for privacy and civil liberties could be devastating.
Add to the list of concerns the arming of domestic drones and you have a recipe for disaster.
Do we as a society really trust a swarm of autonomous drones, potentially armed, which in theory could almost never need leave the sky?

I think it's time to hang up our hats and stop now. Seriously, just stop.
So this is the true reason for gun grabs....
