Re: The UK autonomous weapons

The first autonomous weapons were torpedoes developed 100 years ago. And mines. They have been becoming smarter ever since.

The smarter they become, the less human interaction they need. The less people are required to control them. The more precise they can target.

Modern "torpedoes" could use existing facial recognition technology to pick individuals out in a crowd.
