The robot army of the future – from killer drones to cyborg super soldiers – Mirror Online

Standard

So far, autonomous robots have played a minor role in warfare – with a limited number of drones carrying out aerial bombing in Afghanistan and Pakistan as well as robots being used for bomb disposal and surveillance.

However, defence agencies across the world are investing heavily in technology that can reduce bloodshed and automate acts of war, with one senior American officer saying he could replace a quarter of troops with robots and remote-controlled vehicles.

There are also moves being made to develop cyborg soldiers – humans and animals augmented by technology.
