Nice little snapshot of a patrolling drone and some of it's capabilities, reaches a very natural conclusion!

Bare in mind that this is of course fictional, but for how long?

Scary stuff. Although fictional, it's a sad reality in some countries where wedding parties have been targeted. I hope I never get to see them in action. The problem is that when and if we see them take down our citizens, what country will be at the controls, I wonder?

One has to remember - drones are only machines - garbage in / garbage out - their creators may well be their victims in the end -especially if there is some kind of "intelligence" involved.

The first autonomous police cars will have appeared – they have no need for adriver. These will be able to stop violators or use their cameras to identify the licence plate and automatically deduct fines from bank accounts. There are already a number of autonomous cars in 2008 but it is not possible to get them in operation on the roads because of insurance and legislative difficulties. Many competitive companies, not to mention the military, are working hard to overcome all of the difficulties and that should happen by this period.Robots will use ultra high speed networks to communicate with each other as if they were a single machine so that they can act in concert. Each robot will be able to“see” what all of the others can see. Their computers will be just another node on the network so that information sharing is almost instantaneous. They will be able to search integrated internet databases at very high speed and access visual information from networks of survellience cameras or even access other robot visual systems anddata banks. Another development will be the use of swarm intelligence technologies either with small or large robots to make escape from capture impossible. When set in automatic mode, the robots will be able to collectively plan at very high speeds and communicate directly through their computers without giving anything away to suspects.

Problem is if someone takes one out (not for dinner but destroys) and If they develop, like what IMO is planned, there will be several others who track you. Power supply is the only thing holding them back from some truly amazingly small critter robots.. All developments can be used for good and bad and this is no different except the PTB who will be running them this time around.

Yeah well ..... given that today's drones are making the world safe for [anarchy, murder, rape & theft], tomorrow's AI drones will no doubt behave like the fictional metalheads of the "terminator" movies.

As you point out -- garbage in, garbage out. Psycho in, psycho out. I can't help but wonder if there will be streaming advertisements along their flanks for the day's current mortgage rates.
