Several years ago (at least five) they ran computer AI in a simulator against combat pilot training instructors. Computer beat them every time. Simulator versus actual functioning combat drone is a difference, but probably isn’t much of a difference.

It was not long ago that an Uber self driving car killed a woman.
Imagine what this doggy machine gun could do if it had a "malfunction".
The weaponization of autonimous robots, (robots that can be armed and tasked without human realtime control), is a real bad idea, and the world should collectively outlaw it completely.

The Assistant Secretary of the Army for Acquisition, Logistics and Technology's (ASAALT's) office paused the service's Integrated Visual Augmentation System (IVAS) and is “essentially doing a reset of that programme, figuring out what is the appropriate timeline and where is the technology”, Brigadier General William Glaser, director of the Synthetic Training Environment Cross-Functional Team, told Janes on 12 October.

Keep getting trained. Microwaves are reflected by metals. Booby traps? Start digging. This thing can take you down from a mile. What energy weapon from your collection is effective from a mile away?

You will not see it. You wont know what got you
