More scientists who are reviewing research funded by the military, including the budget of the US Department of Defence, believe the threat against human race coming from robots and other higher technologies are real. Besides killer robots, which more than 1,000 scientists warn of, drones that are invisible add to the threats. The Sydney Morning Herald cites the 2011 defense budget which mentions of a robust robotics programme that would develop techniques which enables robotic agents to be capable of autonomous reasoning even in the absence of humans. For 2016, the budget says the military is developing “hybrid biological-computational platforms” as well as fresh approaches to use physiological and neural signs that would result in human-machine systems becoming more efficient. These development indicate that the threats to the human race…
