... they give unmanned vehicles nuclear / ICBM capabilities? How long before we see a takeover by a hostile/terrorist state of such an unmannded carrier and actually resulting in a REAL war.
Computers shouldn't be put in control of heavy weaponry. The good old finger on mechanical trigger should do the job. We here on slashdot should realize the implications of giving computers "control" over WMD (which include ICMB).
Doesn't this worry anybody here on slashdot?
Some of us are capable of finding a buffer-overflows (like you find water in your fridge), analyzing the memory, writing a good payload exploit... This is soo bad.
Besides all this, its easier to make mistakes, hurt innocents when you are not in the line of fire. Its easier to press that enter/execute button and kill people. It takes away a lot of the moral issues. When war becomes a videogame, where is the moral oversight.... sigh..
