Russia building ‘ground force’ of killer robots; Bomber drones, self-driving tanks
Welcome to the battlefield of the future…
A TERRIFYING new video showcases some of Russia’s latest killer robot technology.
AI-controlled mini-tanks and swarms of autonomous cat-sized drones obliterate targets in the propaganda clip released by the Kremlin.
The robots are designed to assist Russian infantry, and are currently controlled by a human remotely.
However, in future the tech will be fully autonomous, meaning it can target and kill enemies without needing help from a human.
Russia’s Advanced Research Foundation (ARF), the military research division behind the new technology, said the ultimate goal is to have an army of robots controlled by AI.
“The evolution of combat robots is on the path of increasing the ability to perform tasks in autonomous mode with a gradual reduction in the role of the operator,” a spokesperson told C4ISRNET.
