You are correct. The USAF as well as every other branch of the U.S. Military has a directive to have a large percentage of it's Force be ROBOTIC by
as early as 2016 which is the year the U.S. Army must have at least 50% of all Vehicle Cargo Transport Trucks and ESPECIALLY Weapons carrying Trucks
be completely Robotic.
The USAF must have 40% of all Aircraft be Robotic by 2020. The original date was 2017. The U.S. Navy will have almost 80% of all attack Aircraft
become Robotic by 2020.
This is the reason why the U.S. is not making manned aircraft in any great numbers as Robotic Aircraft are Faster, more maneuverable, capable of
carrying more weapons, capable of staying in flight longer as well as having greater range.
The United States is multiple Decades ahead of any other Country in Super Computers as well as has reportedly developed a QUANTUM COMPUTER. Such a
Computer will be capable of SELF DETERMINATION and be able to react to any situation vastly quicker than any Human Leader.
This actually SCARES ME as I more than most...know how much of a REALITY this is while many others may believe it to be Science Fiction. It is not.
I worry about a Quantum Computers ability of SELF DETERMINATION and I would hope a Form of Development Governor can be placed on something that we are
able to create but as of yet...do not know the effects that this creation could have.
The Human Brain is a Quantum Computer. It is Biological in Nature and thus constrained by that fact. A Synthetic Version of the Human Brain as the
Quantum Computer is said to have it's method of Computation modeled after Human Engrams...thus it is not too far a leap to think that such a Computer
could become SENTIENT.
The MORAL implications of this as well as the DANGER of the creation of a NEW LIFE FORM that may or may not have the ability to govern it's own
behavior as the Creation is only constrained by the CREATORS limits placed within it's construct. We could very well be looking at an ARNOLD MOVIE
in the making!
