Rise of the Terminators – Military Artificial Intelligence (AI) | Weapons that think for Themselves

Weapons and warfare have become increasingly sophisticated; the latest battlefield technology is starting to look more like a computer game with wirelessly connected soldiers communicating via sound and vision to drones carrying satellite-linked wi-fi hotspots & given orders by commanders that could be on the of the side of the world.

But the weapons of the future won’t need soldiers or commanders to operate them because they will make the decision of what or whom to target themselves using Artificial intelligence.
The pentagon is spending billions on developing a new generation of Lethal Autonomous Weapons (LAWS) like robotic fighter Jets, missiles that decide what to attack and ships that hunt enemy submarines.
For now, remote weapons like UAV’s or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are directed by humans from the safety of cubicles often hundreds or thousands of miles away from the conflict zone and as such, any decision to use lethal force is made by a person.
But before we start thinking Skynet is going to take over and we’ll have terminators roaming around, we are still a long way from the Hollywood version of AI. Although We have seen the latest generation of robots like the Boston Dynamics Atlas and its uncanny ability for walk and move like a human, we won’t be seeing an army of robotic soldiers anytime soon.
Whilst we think of AI being used with the latest hardware, The USAF is working on using older aircraft refitted with autonomous controls. The project called “Loyal Wingman” sees retired F-16’s reused and with enough autonomy so that they could be fly alongside the latest F-35’s and take cues from the human pilot in another aircraft just as a real human wingman would, and probably before driverless cars will be on public roads.
Autonomous missiles are an area which is already in use with systems like the British “fire and forget” Brimstone missiles. Once it has been primed with target information it can work on its own to select the best target and co-operate with up 24 other missiles to coordinate a staggered attack against swarms of enemy vehicles or boats, if it can’t find a target it will self-destruct.
Drones are the other big area for Military AI. The Israel Aerospace Industries HAROP is a small anti-radiation drone, which is also called the “suicide drone”. This can stay airborne above a battle area for up to 6 hours looking for a specific radio transmission like a RADAR sources or enemy air defense systems, but could, in theory look for things like specific mobile phones, the HAROP will then home in on the signal and deliberately crash into and destroy its target with it on board warhead.
Meanwhile, DARPA, the military research arm of the Pentagon has also unveiled the “Sea Hunter”, an autonomous surface vessel that is designed stay at sea for months and track even the quietest submarines anywhere in the world. Because it is designed not to have any human crew during its operation, it must navigate busy shipping lanes and interact with an intelligent human adversary by its self then communicate its data back to its control centre or take the appropriate action if it were to be armed.

    As a kid , the movie " jaws " gave me nightmares , as an adult , this subject , science fiction-science fact will give me several sleepless nights

    What could possibly go wrong

    Although only a movie something like this could happen.. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9fa9lVwHHqg Called "Slaughter Bots" is what might happen if we keep going this way..

  5. Aaron Seet on May 20, 2021 at 2:55 am

    When we cannot even fully trust autonomous cars and aircraft, I don’t know when we can trust logic that decides between life and death.

  6. You'reDoingItWrong on May 20, 2021 at 2:58 am

    This stuff is ridiculously dangerous. It’s going to have to be at least heavily regulated.

  7. moi même on May 20, 2021 at 2:58 am

    Cool but peace is better than any weapon

  8. L.R. Norris on May 20, 2021 at 3:02 am

    this is very dangerous. We could find ourselves in the middle of a war that was the error of some AI devise.

  9. Seto Kiaba on May 20, 2021 at 3:03 am

    I just gonna put it out there Ai are dumb worse than a baby they are only good at doing one task they cant ask what if or say no like humans.However i blame programmers if their at fault.

    Not killing civilians is a recent and decidely Western thought and just feel good fancy. In the East and elsewhere civilians are specifically targetted. In WWII the Allies had no compunction at all in purposely killing German and Japanese civilians in order to erode production and morale. You can only think that way when you have luxury of thinking you have a significant advantage over your enemy such that you "don’t need to pick on the innocent civilians". In a peer state War though, where the other side will have no problem at all in nukeing London, NYC or LA those notions will quickly go out the window.

    That legalistic bullshit near the end of the video was just that: BULLSHIT.

    The real war is in the Heavens.

    What side are you on?

    If you believe the Matrix movie these gismos are going to max us out.

    Wow they made a robot to simulate a drunk!

    Yes but we were doing that with the jindivik back in the 60s 70s @Curious Droid

  20. Projjwal Ray-6 on May 20, 2021 at 3:13 am

    As a member of the species, it is really sad to see that we invest so heavily in technologies to kill our own kind. And equally rigorous investment in advancement of the species could have already brought on the Space Age.

    The greatest of evil there ever will be, is the conduct of mankind that plays the mastermind, the greatest fear of what is evil, is the "AI" granted as a mastermind, that eventually will figure that out. The greated mistake anything will ever make, is never being able to distinguish good from evil, then cleans all that be.

  22. Dustin Berthold on May 20, 2021 at 3:15 am

    Interesting, how mankind is so focused on destruction…

  23. Elam Garek on May 20, 2021 at 3:16 am

    What could possibly go wrong?

  24. Independent Mind on May 20, 2021 at 3:17 am

    What if all these type of weapons are hacked and used by the enemy or some rogue organization? That risk will never be zero.

  25. Monte Cristo on May 20, 2021 at 3:18 am

    Give in to a.i.

  26. Swoon Drones on May 20, 2021 at 3:20 am

    Exploding military is anti glory. Thinking military is the pinnacle of power is the total antithesis of life.

    4 words signal jamming and emp.

  29. SpringBok401 on May 20, 2021 at 3:21 am

    AI left to target and make decisions on their actions? No thank you. We’re moving too quickly to AI without safeguarding it.

  30. Lithostheory on May 20, 2021 at 3:23 am

    I think I saw a documentary about this, maybe the title was something like the terminator or similar.

    Imagine what one of those drones would do if it flew over an airsoft arena

  34. Shining Trapezoid on May 20, 2021 at 3:29 am

    Feed and educate your population?
    NO! We need AI weapons!

  35. Gorilla Jones on May 20, 2021 at 3:30 am

    Our destruction is an inevitability.

  36. Monkey80llx on May 20, 2021 at 3:33 am

    We’ll know when A.I is perfected when it destroys weapons and military hardware by self destruction and let’s humankind move past the primitive form of self destruction that is futile wars for the sake of greed and religion!

  37. Fallout Space on May 20, 2021 at 3:34 am

    Is that drone at the end of video is the one iran hacked it and brought it down 😂😂😂

  38. Max T on May 20, 2021 at 3:37 am

    Israel commits war crimes all the time and nothing happens

    America needs to spend billions on AI since it’s next gen people don’t have any?

  41. Collin.M on May 20, 2021 at 3:40 am

    The thing is that all you need to be is smart with programming and the hardware which is already easily obtained just by going online, both of which are common nowadays, that’s the problem with AI’s period not just military AI

  42. Dwight_K_Schrute on May 20, 2021 at 3:41 am

    There is some middle ground between SKYNET and a perfect working AI. It’s called a horrible accident where the AI does something unpredictable due to poor programming and lots of people die.

  43. Sam Betts on May 20, 2021 at 3:41 am

    This is like Z.O.E from ace combat with those f16s

  44. Navrable on May 20, 2021 at 3:42 am

    Why can’t we just have dancing robots and settle conflict with a dance competition?

  45. Stefanski 2020 on May 20, 2021 at 3:42 am

    So irresponsible

  46. Sanity Maintenance with Irukandji on May 20, 2021 at 3:45 am

    Penta- ghin?

  48. Gowtham Natarajan on May 20, 2021 at 3:47 am

    This cannot be banned. If US bans it, it does not mean russia, china or iran would also ban it.
