Producer of Russia’s Armata T-14 plans to create army of AI robots with prototypes as early as 2 years.



Uralvagonzavod, the company that introduced the ‘super tank’ Armata T-14 back in May, is now trying to step away from piloted military technologies and is eager to develop artificial intelligence.

< br />
I know its inevitable but im really not looking forward to a military that is operated by Artificial intelligence.


As an example, he noted that the Armata now requires three crew members.

“Then it will be two and then without them at all,” Khalitov said.





Earlier, Uralvagonzavod revealed its plans to make a remote-controlled tank in the near future. The news was welcomed by Rogozin, who joked that the military would soon need people experienced in the computer game ‘World of Tanks’.

“We need no tankers now, we need World of Tanks players,” Rogozin tweeted.


And soon all of the Call of Duty noobs will be hired by the military to operate a division of cyborgs....Or could all future wars be robot vs robot with no human casualties? who ever has the last standing wins?

Less money on training...
In fact take into consideration it's the gamers purchasing the games, COD etc they're actually footing the bill...

Also less PTSD...
Less medical expenses for injured personnel...



Really is cost effective when looking at it...
But a slippery slope none the less.

All very well until the enemy hack the control codes and point the tanks back at their controllers!

As a former Tanker myself this is giant pile of horse hockey. Who's going to fix the tank when it breaks down?
Who's going to re do the Bore sighting of the main gun? What happens when a weapon jams?
How fast will the robot tank be able to locate, ID, load the right round, get the range to the target and fire?
What happens when the tank gets stuck or throws a track?
Who is going to pull maintenance on the damn thing? Trust me a tank will break down just sitting still.
Will the remote driver, looking on a tiny black and white screen, be able to tell solid ground from a marsh that will swallow the tank whole?
What is the range of the control system? Which will probably give off a huge amount of radio transmissions.
I'd would just look in the area for the biggest source of transmissions and take out the entire grid square with Artillery.
Robot tanks make great Science fiction but the reality is a long ways off yet.

The PTSD thing, This may shock you but drone operators have PTSD also. Before anyone scoffs and makes jokes think about it. You sit in a chair and just blew someone away on a big screen tv and watch their body parts flying all over the place. Then you get up and go home. That can screw with your head after a while.

"Airman First Class Brandon Bryant stared at the scene, unblinking in the white-hot clarity of infrared. He recalls it even now, years later, burned into his memory like a photo negative: “The smoke clears, and there’s pieces of the two guys around the crater. And there’s this guy over here, and he’s missing his right leg above his knee. He’s holding it, and he’s rolling around, and the blood is squirting out of his leg, and it’s hitting the ground, and it’s hot. His blood is hot. But when it hits the ground, it starts to cool off; the pool cools fast. It took him a long time to die. I just watched him. I watched him become the same color as the ground he was lying on.”

So eventually it'll be battles of "our robots" vs "their robots"...and whoever has the best robots will win?

Thank you for showing the reasons why this is a stupid idea. I hope this guy learns these things the hard way if it ever gets off the ground.

Excellent Points Mash

Its brilliant to get the view of someone who knows.
We often need a BIG reality check rather than thinking like a gamer, safe in front of our PCs.
Vets often need to educate us on our utter naivety on the reality of war from time to time. Kudos bro..
This is no game, this is serious sh..t

It's not going to help because once all the defenders robots are dead, the real people will start to fight the robots.

Or whoever knows the ground better, and has the better tactics, there is a lot more to the battleground these days...

who knows what they are really up to...........

Love that game though WoT. Have not played in awhile though. I had ptsd before I went into the military I just deal with it well. Real life war sucks anyways just a waste of talent and resources in most cases.
