The era of robot wars could be fast approaching. A laboratory at the Georgia Institute of Technology in Atlanta is already considering the jump to a fully-fledged armed robot warrior, a development with huge implications for future warfare.
How could humans even consider creating machines to release with the sole purpose of killing other human beings? They are planning for a future of war instead of peace.
While every decent person is deeply concerned with the welfare of other endangered creatures on the planet, others are planning to fight and kill a future unknown enemy.
