Killer robots will be debated during an informal meeting of experts at the United Nations in Geneva.

Two robotics experts, Prof Ronald Arkin and Prof Noel Sharkey, will debate the efficacy and necessity of killer robots.

A killer robot is a fully autonomous weapon that can select and engage targets without any human intervention. They do not currently exist but advances in technology are bringing them closer to reality.

Those in favour of killer robots believe the current laws of war may be sufficient to address any problems that might emerge if they are ever deployed, arguing that a moratorium, not an outright ban, should be called if this is not the case.

However, those who oppose their use believe they are a threat to humanity and any autonomous "kill functions" should be banned.

I don't think they see all the things that could go wrong. These are independent units that make their own decisions.

1968 Kent State Ohio Massacre

That was done by National Guard

and they got away with it , the Governor ordered them to the Campus

four dead students

Imagine if they have a Machine that will not fear the death penalty

Those who use this killing machine can escape Culpability by claiming the Machine
experienced a Glitch in it's programming .

It WILL indeed turn into a free hand for Mass Death for the POO's

But ,,,,

thinking on that ,,,

If a Mass Population will suffer their controlled lives and do nothing to prevent it .

Perhaps it is no real loss , if they refuse to fight against their own suppression .

ie : You deserve everything you do to yourself , and everything you allow to
be done to you .

How I see it :

The World population has become spineless opportunist consumers , more concerned
with their comforts than their human rights and freedom .

They have lost they're tribal inner connection and no longer stand against
those who violate them .

Shall I personally feel remorse for those who personally act only in their own self
interest and care only of their own safety ?

" I think NOT "

f_ck 'em , let the Robbies Eat them alive .
