The Future of Military Robots

There is a lot of disquieting uncertainty about how robots will change humanity. The current conversation is about humans losing jobs to robots. Robots will free us from labor that humans no longer need to do. A more conflicted conversation is about the increasingly robotic area of military conflict. Fewer humans will be put in harms way, which is good. However, if this becomes a reason to start a conflict more easily then it will be more harmful. Humans have never seem to avoid conflict, so this is just the next evolution of weaponry. This is much less scary than the use of nuclear weapons, which were last used 70 years ago. Technology is not good or bad, people and their use of it can be. This is the emerging reality. Please reflect upon it.
