"This would work against one or two robots.

If AI is used in a swarm, the AI could tap into surveillance infrastructures, and perhaps even cell phones if the communications corporations allow for 5G cell towers to be used. "

Autonomous swarms are far more worrying..
Imagine a "nanite" type swarm of many millions-maybe not quite nano scale-but something like mosquito sized,able to recharge from ambient power emissions from power lines,armed with anything from neurotoxic darts to ting high explosive payloads which could be stacked to make a huge bomb.
Something like that could look invisible if they spread out in the air,and could terrorize whole cities or infiltrate high security areas with ease.
If we are not quite there yet in tech terms-we are not far off.

Cool. I want to buy thousands. Then the world will have to appreciate my poetry!

It doesn't even have to be Taiwan.

Imagine how good these would be to have for "guarding" millions of Uighurs currently in the concentration camps. Or when Chinese people protest inhumane treatment during lockdowns.

Air dropped robo-dogs sound like Xi's wet dream.

If you're flying multi engine commercial jet cargo or
passenger these days for a living, juulz.. you don't
need a support bot, you need an analyst.
My favorite thing with supply chains is all those weapons the bots
leave behind after the batteries wear down.
I could use some AR parts

true, I bet these things are equipped with facial recognition linked to a social credit score database.

just walk through the streets on a normal busy day and occasionally plink a deadbeat in the head.

Why would Turkey be in Libya?? They been there for like six years, supporting the government in Tripoli. They also have kept a steady supply route of fighters to combat the Eastern government attempting to take back the capitol. Turkey also deployed the first combat use of a laser weapon to disable a Chinese drone operated by the UAE. They have been pretty invested there for years now. I use to cover it alot.

that one sounds like a chainsaw, is it powered by a two-stroke gas engine?

I was wondering how long the battery life was for these other robots.

And when they run out of bullets, do they self destruct with a bang that destroys the entire city block...just to be sure?

How long would it be before they went wonky and had a glitch?

The moment these aren't human controlled they break Geneva conventions.

It was in Libya that they said that drones have already used artificial intelligence to identify and kill targets. you'd think this would be a bigger deal. Not sure if this is the same, but I also heard Turkey's name attached to this activity, though not sure why they would be in Libya so I'm assuming that's a 2nd incident.

i think the turks are supplying ukraine with drones.

so i've heard.
