You're seriously saying that there's nothing to discuss here, then? Seriously?

Heh, you think fully autonomous weapons are going to come before the end of war?

I don't care about 'fully'. In the short term, I care about the technology that's already at our fingertips: a robot with a machine-gun that is able to assess a situation and then 'decide' (without human intervention) to shoot the people it deems to be the enemy.

Do you count landmines as fully autonomous?

Interesting example. In a sense, yes, I guess so. The problems with landmines arise precisely because they make poor 'decisions' to kill people, no?
