QuoteA "lethal" weaponized drone "hunted down a human target" without being told to for the first time, according to a UN report seen by the New Scientist.
QuoteThe Turkish-built KARGU-2, a deadly attack drone designed for asymmetric warfare and anti-terrorist operations, targeted one of Haftar's soldiers while he tried to retreat, according to the paper.
Quote"The lethal autonomous weapons systems were programmed to attack targets without requiring data connectivity between the operator and the munition: in effect, a true 'fire, forget and find' capability," the report from the UN Security Council's Panel of Experts on Libya said.

Quote from: Shiranu on June 01, 2021, 06:31:08 PMThese drones have to have a connection to their HQ, right? Theoretically what is stopping a foreign power from either disrupting that signal to cause malfunctions or finding a way to hack into them and intentionally changing their FOF programs?

And their very limited fly time (30 minutes) means there's a very narrow window for a compromised drone to do anything nefar...technically, I guess it was already doing something nefarious. So...more nefarious.
