We consistently see the power of science fiction to inform our views today. The short Sci-Fi clip Slaughterbots is a very well done view of a possible near future of AI and Robotic enabled horror that all of us should see and consider.
Of course the point is that we are NOT going to allow this to occur. But the video should inspire us to think beyond that simple fact. We should consider the policies we put in place for development of weapons of all sort. And should also consider defensive measures that can be put in place to prevent adversaries from attacking our interests with weapons they will develop.
For now, watch the clip and help share it to others you know who could benefit from examining these topics:
The film, clearly, is more than just speculation. It shows what could easily happen in just a few years as technology advances. Just apply the right amount of hostile intent and very bad things can happen globally.
