Packs of robots will hunt down uncooperative humans
Back then it was pure science fiction to me. Now the latest request from the pentagon says it all. They are looking for a "Multi-Robot Pursuit System that will let packs of robots search for and detect a non-cooperative human". It's all part of the US Army's Future Combat Systems project, which aims to make a single soldier the nexus for a large scale robot attack.
"What we have here are the beginnings of something designed to enable robots to hunt down humans like a pack of dogs. Once the software is perfected we can reasonably anticipate that they will become autonomous and become armed. We can also expect such systems to be equipped with human detection and tracking devices including sensors which detect human breath and the radio waves associated with a human heart beat. These are technologies already developed." - Steve Wright of Leeds Metropolitan University
