Horror Short Film “Slaughterbots” | ALTER

In a dystopian world a new form of A.I. weaponry has been created. All these drone bots need is a profile: age, sex, fitness, uniform, and ethnicity. Nuclear is obsolete. Take out your entire enemy virtually risk free. Just characterize him, release the swarm, and rest easy.

More About Slaugherbots:
The 7 minute film opens with a Silicon Valley CEO-type delivering a product presentation to a live audience a la Steve Jobs. The presentation seems innocuous enough at first—the presenter seems to be unveiling some new drone technology—but takes a dark turn when he demonstrates how these autonomous drones can slaughter humans like cattle by delivering “a shaped explosive” to the skull.The audience eats it up, clapping and laughing along with the CEO as if they hadn’t witnessed anything more dangerous than the unveiling of the iPhone X. The CEO goes further, showing videos of the tiny killer drone in action. “Let’s watch what happens when the weapons make the decisions,” the CEO says, as the bot executes a number of people on the massive screen behind him. “Now trust me, these are all bad guys.” What follows is a deeply unsettling portrait of a dystopian world where these small weaponised drones use their onboard technologies—“cameras like you use for your social media apps, facial recognition like you have on your phones!”—to make autonomous decisions about who lives and who dies.

    Just make the perfect virus update like the you are an idiot malware by buying the all killer bots before that guy and edit them to spread the malware to those others like the animal crossing rasist catchphrase controversy

  2. Lost meme on April 6, 2021 at 1:03 am

    To counter act the threat, buildings will have drone detection tech, as well as signal jammers in each room. Drones this tiny cannot process all that information without commenting to an outside processor.

  3. TCG Nerd on April 6, 2021 at 1:03 am

    EMPs anyone

  4. Rumen_hack on April 6, 2021 at 1:04 am

    похуй, дайте 2

  5. Flipje Tiel on April 6, 2021 at 1:08 am

    Could anyone who has moral qualms about the widespread use of Slaughterbots (TM) please post their names and addresses here?

  6. Rogelio Rodriguez on April 6, 2021 at 1:09 am

    “Destroy it’s contents” kind of like social media

  7. Greed Is bad on April 6, 2021 at 1:10 am

    To counter that people need to make a reactive armor helmet lmao

  8. Kurumi cheu on April 6, 2021 at 1:12 am

    Facebook is broken? Looks like he posted 3 hour ago and the comments are from 5 hours ago?

  9. Zoltan Szlavik on April 6, 2021 at 1:15 am

    I bet its easy to stop them all…

  10. Lastman Standing on April 6, 2021 at 1:16 am

    This is silly, I don’t think this could ev…………………………………………bang.

  11. Alex Fogel on April 6, 2021 at 1:17 am

    this was made by someone who doesnt know anything about weapon integrated drone systems lmao they would never work this way

  12. Todd Reinert on April 6, 2021 at 1:18 am

    Good case for development of localized EMP devices. Someone with a basic understanding of electronics and a basic understanding of chemistry could make a drone like that very cheaply for manual control. A little more knowledge in the field of programming and it could be automated just by altering the code that is already in modern "toy" drones

  13. DoubleEM Castillano on April 6, 2021 at 1:18 am

    US Army uniform is off. He’s inside and would not wear the cover (hat). I also believe the Army doesn’t wear rank on their covers in dress uniforms but Im not sure. An army vet could tell you more though.

  14. temmy9 on April 6, 2021 at 1:19 am

    this is what skynet would actually use

  15. Lost meme on April 6, 2021 at 1:19 am

    The thing is we should be devolving and researching these types of weapons so we can then create better defenses against such drones in the future and be ready for there eventual coming.

  16. A I on April 6, 2021 at 1:20 am

    Set them to target “law” enforcement

  17. Mischievous Raccoon on April 6, 2021 at 1:20 am

    In a world where hackers and helmets don’t exist

  18. Greenlief on April 6, 2021 at 1:21 am

    holyy shitt that is possible. dangg bro. scary.

  19. John Galloway on April 6, 2021 at 1:24 am

    There’s this thing called birdshot and semi automatic shotguns,

  20. Hobbo on April 6, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Just wear a helmet

  21. Grim Reaper on April 6, 2021 at 1:25 am

    Trust me ..no you’ll take a big magnet their al is doomed that Already been test…ted we human have created gour Al not your al who had or have created us human

  25. Johnny's cafe on April 6, 2021 at 1:30 am

    That was not a short horror film, that is more like a warning … Well made and I’m sure everyone will remember this and even bring it up in conversation, if someone gets assassinated and there’s no suspect , we will be like …, "could it have been….?" 😳

  26. Austin Reynolds on April 6, 2021 at 1:32 am

    Can’t be stoped no it can be stoped use emp device there you go

  27. Keef Syko on April 6, 2021 at 1:32 am

    This is totally posible

  28. nozzy on April 6, 2021 at 1:34 am

    WTF Im scared

  29. Delta deltus on April 6, 2021 at 1:35 am

    With the current technological advancements, a similar situation, the swarm of killer automated nano drones is possible within less than 10 years

  30. Wyatt Zimmermman on April 6, 2021 at 1:36 am

    "We’re super proud of it" Wow sounds a lot like Biden describing something that’s actually done any good

  31. D R on April 6, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Anyone here in 2021 now that AI weaponry is beginning to dominate headlines? Buckle up…

  32. Russ Forgus on April 6, 2021 at 1:36 am

    Welcome to the future!?

  33. Taube008letsplay on April 6, 2021 at 1:38 am

    why has this so few views ? this is the real thread. Only look around in military industry, AI is becoming standard (one bad guy was already killed from an ai controlled rifle)

  34. Exarian on April 6, 2021 at 1:41 am

    in these comments: a bunch of people who think they’re either way more badass than they are or think that EMPs are magic anti-technology buttons that can be deployed at a moment’s notice whenever convenient and will always work without causing significant permanent damage to infrastructure.

    Y’all gotta stop getting your science education from Call of Duty.

  35. Waving Waters on April 6, 2021 at 1:42 am

    7:14 , it’s seriously scary that this film is very possible to become reality, like this guy said, the window of opportunity is closing fast, we need to prevent this from happening, and only you, can stop it.

  36. Mark Mywords on April 6, 2021 at 1:42 am

    Need to release them on the CCP. Need to develop a close range EMP device.

  37. Citizen’s Guard on April 6, 2021 at 1:43 am

    The guy at the end has cold dead eyes… he may very well be an A.I. Himself… lol

  38. Richard Turner on April 6, 2021 at 1:45 am

    Is this real?

  39. Rayhan Arazi on April 6, 2021 at 1:45 am

    This is like the cancel culture made by the leftists but on the next level..

  40. Carl Lagr on April 6, 2021 at 1:46 am

    Ban is not good option.

    Magnetic electric Impulse can destroy every maschine.

  43. Jacob Hulse on April 6, 2021 at 1:55 am

    The man at the end who speaks should be paid attention towards. You must remember that the "The Enemy" or "Evil Person" is extremely opinionated based on one individual. And with this in the hands of a corrupt politician for example, could lead to devastating consequences. Robots that have this ability to nearly take out anyone no matter how many precautions one takes, can lead to a serious tragedy which WILL lead to the end of human existence on this planet. Machinery should not have a mind of it’s own, no matter what, robots cannot feel emotion or love, or have any sense of morals or of law and order. A simple discovery towards the idea of murder in a independent machines mind, will give birth to a serial killer with no doubt. And if independent machinery are given the near indestructible body. Than the results are simply "No matter what we do, we WILL all fall.". Overall, if humans have the power to end an entire city with just the click of a button, surely there will be someone somewhere who will decide to do so. Humanity is attracted to evil, power, and attention. And if given the right tool, that can lead to a deadly combination. If a robot with a mind of it’s own and a body for itself learns of murder, it WILL become corrupt. And if a robot with power of ending wars is given to a single person. The corruption of power WILL emerge.

    I thank the creator of this story and concept for getting this message out there. God bless him.

    What if this technology real, it will backfire on it’s creater, and his/her country would be in danger.

  45. adsa daa on April 6, 2021 at 1:56 am

    If any one has the will, this is definitely going to happen.
    It does not cost much and it’s not hard to build one of these.
    and all of the technology are based on what we already have.
    The fact that microchip becomes more and more powerful, and algorithms becomes more and more efficient and accurate are just speeding up the process.

  46. Arom Suh on April 6, 2021 at 1:58 am

    THe real scary part about all this is that it’s all too real

  47. John SSmith on April 6, 2021 at 1:58 am

    They can’t be stopped

    This is scary as hell with whats going on today! Crypto currency to track your every move!

    So the terrorists stole the drones (or the guy who made them planned all of it)
