“A rogue killer drone ‘hunted down’ a human target without being instructed to, UN report says”

Just because there wasn’t an operator, it doesn’t mean it wasn’t instructed to kill. It was programmed to do just that:

“The drone, which can be directed to detonate on impact, was operating in a ‘highly effective’ autonomous mode”

So I don’t see how this smart mine (which is what it is) was “rogue.” Sounds like it was operating as designed (and that’s the real problem).

The local problem is that fuc*ing irresponsible operator who put it on Full Auto and then let it loose.

As always was ( and will be) :
It isn't the weapon , it's the hand.

The uman hand.

Uman responsabily.

@aral That just strikes me as dumbassery on the part of the operator, they set it to be highly autonomous.
