I have mixed reactions to this whole drone scenario. Truth is, there are good uses for them, yet we use them for some not so good things (opinions will differ).
I agree with you where there is a difference between military usage, and domestic use against our own civilians. Where will the line be drawn. Never mind we drew it but they still crossed it. Nothing we say matters. Just hope when these things are in full force flying above you in daytime view that you are not on their "hit list".

Have you ever thought to wonder that perhaps all the cool innovations they have come up with have been hidden from the general public for good, and sinister reasons.
I personally believe there is much more technology out there than we are let known. Such as clean renewable energy, food for everyone, cure for diseases. I would not hold it past TPTB to hold anything from us that my benefit us just for their own profits and protection.
But you may be right, maybe we have hit the pinnacle of our advancement for the time being, but I don't exactly agree with that.
The Ethical Adaptor is defined by Prof. Arkin as being “a robotic architecture that is designed for enforcing ethical constraints on the actions of robots that have the ability to use lethal force”. [Ed. Another name for it is the Ethical Governor as it works just like a governor on a motor but in this case what is being restricted is lethality or death and destruction].
[Ed. Essentially the ethical governor works in conjunction with fire control systems and databases which include mission directives and objectives as well as ‘constraint sets’ (‘C’) based on the Rules of Engagement (ROE) and the Laws of War (LOW). All of these components work together as a complete system to govern the behavior of the robot in the field and it is the robot’s perceived ‘feelings’ of guilt which trigger the system to restrict the lethality of the robot.]
Hi. I am also very interested in this subject matter. Apparently we do not need to worry about the integrity of our own ethics because the plan is to outsource them to robots. I am sure that this has been said already but presently, by law, a person (human being) must be in the 'loop' when these machines are operating. You can have a look at the architecture for the systems that will run these machines when they are unmanned by checking out the work of Professor Ronald C. Arkin. He and his team at Georgia Tech are developing what is called the Ethical Adaptor. I set up a thread just about this very thing last week. Please check it out if you have a moment.
No. Simply because I know people that are developing quantum computing technology with funding from the military. So I know the tech is not there yet. At the moment it works, isnt as good as current CPUs, and is unstable for long term use.

Hi my first post here. I have been following the ATS for a while. Decided to jump in the pool at last.Thanks.
I do agree that we might be far of from T1000, though nobody knows how much the military is advanced in robotics and so on. Remember the Stealth and the B bombers. And thats what public came to find what was secret those days but i think they were disclosed deliberately anyway. So what I am saying is, we will never know what they have until a big war breaks out just like WW2. I am assuming the army,navy and airforce have technology way advanced then what we see today out there. Cheers,

reminded me of that most stupid of stupid movies skyline
where the ripped out the brains to run their machinery.
to the op i think no worries for at least another 50 years
personally i think we will be wiped out from a virus,asteroid,or yellowstone before "killer robots" will have their chance. but im hoping for a zombie apocalpyse cause thats the only shtf scenario i have the best chance at surving
