The future shown in the video doesnít look very far off, which is why itís so incredibly scary. It could be next Tuesday

I'll just drop this here...

Wonder if a mirror would bugger up their AI.

I was thinking recently the police will probably get in on the drone act. There's been kids in the area causing a few disturbances, mainly in the nearby forest... lighting fires etc. The police are too slow to detect the crimes, so why not fly a drone up.

The video was made to be a warning probably with the goal of international treaty to prevent autonomous weapons.  I think this is a worthy idea, but a bigger problem is that the technology is already at the consumer level.

I hadn't considered that drones could make nuclear weapons mostly obsolete... wow.

In this, the third year of conflict in eastern Ukraine, Aleksandr's drones have become increasingly visible in the combat zone.

I can't find it now but approx 18 months ago there was an article about UK army using swarm-tech drones on a practice maneuver. They had the swarm do collective reconnaissance on a village.  Anyway, swarm-tech is pretty mature now. It's been 5+ years or so -a lifetime in drone years- since MIT, etc. wow-ed us with a couple of drones playing ping pong.
