Quote from: Unbeliever on February 13, 2023, 09:32:09 PMI'm not sure what difference it makes, since we'll all be dead before it makes a difference anyway. Once we're dead who cares what the world does? 🤔
Quote from: Shiranu on February 14, 2023, 12:55:48 AMUnfortunately, I see this coming to a critical point within the next decade; Turkey has already begun experimenting with drones that are AI-operated and can fire on humans without authorization from a human - who knows what bigger powers have locked away in labs.That's a very, very short step away from disaster.
Quote from: Gawdzilla Sama on February 14, 2023, 02:54:27 PMI remember the prognostications that driving at 60 mph would suck the air out of our lungs. I got to go along on a test drive at Bonneville that hit 180 mph. I guess I died three times?

QuoteIf it comes to a point where machinery gets to big for it's boots, I'm sure it's nothing some wire snips or a sledgehammer can't sort out.
Quote from: the_antithesis on February 14, 2023, 03:46:48 AMI think it's more likely that you won't be able to find a job than the world becomes Terminator 2: Judgment Day.The main problem is how do we transition from now to a future where no one has to work and machines do everything for us?
QuoteTurkey may have been behind the battlefield deployment of a military-grade autonomous drone that may have marked an historic and chilling first if its artificial intelligence-based weapons system, essentially operating with a mind of its own, was used to kill.That's the disturbing conclusion of Zachary Kallenborn, writing for the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists, following the publication of a United Nations report about a March 2020 skirmish in the military conflict in Libya in which a 'killer robot' drone, known as a lethal autonomous weapons system—or LAWS—made its wartime debut. The report, however, does not explicitly determine if the LAWS, a Kargu-2 attack drone made by Turkish company STM, killed anyone or establish if it was operating in autonomous or manual mode.
