So-called killer robots are due to be discussed at the UN Human Rights Council, meeting in Geneva.

A report presented to the meeting will call for a moratorium on their use while the ethical questions they raise are debated.

The robots are machines programmed in advance to take out people or targets, which - unlike drones - operate autonomously on the battlefield.

They are being developed by the US, UK and Israel, but have not yet been used.

Good idea. Now if the UN would discuss the ethics of killer humans...

The acceptance of authority does not lead to intelligence.
A mind untouched by thought...the end of knowledge.

Unfortunately I think this doesn't extend to drones as a drone doesn't think for itself.  A human has to "pull the trigger" so to speak.

What we need to do is fund non-government individuals that will make the same to protect The People and the US Constitution since the US military is no longer interested in doing it.

They have to become self aware first.

Will the UN have a representative to meet our soon to be robot overlords?
