As we all know, once a bureaucrat writes a directive, the problem is solved. Thankfully, we have a directive in place to make sure it’s always a real human pressing a button to drop bombs from a drone. There will be no chance of incompetent humans making mistakes nor of a computer virus taking over the drones.
Worried about the day when the robots become self-aware and start deciding who lives and who dies? The Pentagon’s actually written a directive to make sure that can’t happen, whatever the next steps are in autonomous robots.
