The increased use of unmanned aircraft in conflict zones makes war more likely, and risks creating a ‘Terminator-like’ world, the Ministry of Defence has warned.
It said that using robots to carry out wars for us could be unethical – as Britain continues to use unmanned drones in Afghanistan.
In the Terminator movies by director James Cameron robots have developed a consciousness and hunt down and kill humans.
Fearing that this could become a reality, the internal report says we must act now to decide what is ‘acceptable machine behaviour’.
There is increasing unrest about the use of unmanned drones in Afghanistan – and the Ministry of Defence suggests there could be both legal and moral issues with using pilotless planes.
The drones have killed 124 people in the war-torn country since July 2008, David Cameron revealed in December.
