That article makes no sense, it jumps to completely unsupported conclusions with the support of "experts" who are citing worst case, somebody mad a
really big mistake scenarios, from that the OP is making even more assumptions. The article says nothing about autonomous death squads, it sources a
few things that say military wants some robots to help find people, but if you look at the technology it is almost funny. Those dogs are slow as hell,
can jump like a foot in the air, have to calculate every step, and can't get up if they are truly knocked to the ground. Would I fear for my life?
No, I would probably choke on my food laughing while evading it with complex maneuvers like jumping over small obstacles, throwing heavy things at it,
and generally being better. Besides, it's not even so much as a networking one, either way the robots are remote controlled, they could theoretically
have some freedom of choice, but I have a hard time believing revolution is a programed option. All in all it looks like a great scenario for Home
Alone 12, not a terror of humanity.
