Killed With a Robot
From a The New York Times story on the deadly shooting in Dallas yesterday where 5 police officers were killed by a sniper:
“The negotiations broke down, and we had an exchange of gunfire with the suspect,” the chief said. “We saw no other option but to use our bomb robot and place a device on its extension for it to detonate where the suspect was.”
Robots and artificial intelligence are doing more and more of what we humans used to do, including kill other humans.
