There’s a story on New Scientist that’s just a bit un-nerving.

The Pentagon is seeking contractors to set them up with a “Multi-Robot Pursuit System”.  This would essentially be a pack of robots under remote control, going after a human target.

Given their previously shown efforts involving armed military robots, I can’t help thinking just how dumb an idea this can be.

Kinda along the lines of “I-Robot” meets “1984”.

No Thanks.
