Countries Aiming In Manufacturing Deadly Killer Robot Military Weapon by IdotG(m): 6:29pm On Apr 25, 2020
Due to advancements in military weapon flowing among the poweful countries or the development countries.

China and America are the two power house in term of deadly weapon producing.

powerful nations with large technology industries are resistant to imposing expansive limitations.

Technology experts and human rights advocates issued new warnings about lethal autonomous weapons as the first U.N. meeting on killer robots took place this week in Geneva.

As the United Nations' first formal meeting about killer robots came to a close on Friday, tech experts and critics continued to warn about autonomous weapons and called for more urgent action to curb the threat they pose.

In Geneva this week, a Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW) group of governmental experts on lethal autonomous weapons systems gathered to discuss growing demands that the global community establish limitations on the development of robotic weapons.

As artificial intelligence technology has advanced, human rights organizations, advocacy groups , military leaders , lawmakers , and tech experts, and engineers such Tesla CEO Elon Musk have all expressed concerns about these fast-evolving machines.

"Militaries around the world and defense companies are sinking a lot of money" into developing weapons that can autonomously select targets and kill humans, Mary Wareham of the arms division at Human Rights Watch (HRW) told AFP. "Countries do not have time... to waste just talking about this subject."

"These will be weapons of mass destruction," warned Toby Walsh, an expert on artificial intelligence at the University of New South Wales in Australia.

"I am actually quite confident that we will ban these weapons," he added. "My only concern is whether [nations] have the courage of conviction to do it now, or whether we will have to wait for people to die first."

Amid discussions in Geneva this week, Brazil, Iraq, and Uganda joined the growing list of 22 nations that are calling for an outright ban on fully autonomous lethal weapons, according to a tally by the umbrella advocacy group Campaign to Stop Killer Robots. However, many others—particularly those with large militaries and major tech industries—are resistant to imposing too many limitations.

The United States, for example, said it was "premature" to develop a definition of such weapons, and "said autonomous weapons could help improve guidance of missiles and bombs against military targets, thereby 'reducing the likelihood of inadvertently striking civilians,'" according to the

Associated Press.

Countries like China, Japan, America, Russia and India already pumping lots of millions in other to built advance robot, not just a robot but a killer robotic that is capable of killing human.

In a short let's take a look at the advantages of the technology :

It will reduces the level of dead in war, due to the view of the America and China and also some other develop countries, the main subject is to reduce the high risk in which the soldier partake on their mission, robot will be used in war which will only acquire just few used of human to partake, mostly in term of dissemination of bombs and many more.

To my observation this set of question falls to my mind :

Are we preparing for war? What will happen if this robot falls in the hand of wrong users? Will it come to pass that robot are going to take over and rule the humans?

Let take a look at the deadly robot which are already on plan by each of the advance countries:

1. USA

Atlas, the military's humanoid robot
