But now...they are ready.. over time they will improve... faster, deadlier, thats the damned scary bit.... the technology wont go backwards...

DARPA's Robot, LS3 Can Follow Troops into Battle

For the past two weeks, in the woods of central Virginia around Fort Pickett, the Legged Squad Support System (LS3) four-legged robot has been showing off its capabilities during field testing. Working with the Marine Corps Warfighting Laboratory (MCWL), researchers from DARPA’s LS3 program demonstrated new advances in the robot’s control, stability and maneuverability, including "Leader Follow" decision making, enhanced roll recovery, exact foot placement over rough terrain, the ability to maneuver in an urban environment, and verbal command capability.

I'd rather have robots fighting each other than humans. Or do you believe a skynet like threat is imminent?

  • it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security

The things will be set up to kill people I am sure.  That is the whole point of war, kill and subdue the enemy.  If you don't kill people how can you instill fear. :hmm:   I could see some nonmilitary uses for it in planetary exploration.  But nobody wants to spend money on that.  Money must be spent for new and better ways to kill. <_<

Scientists said about 5 or 6 years ago that if we carry on with robots and ai advancements with war we could be looking at a Terminator scenario.

Exactly. Sooner we establish world peace and make a united space program that we cna put all these resources into the better.

I think the point is whoever developes the technology fastet wont send its men in,  therefore a less tech army will be destroyed, and few if any humans hurt

Robots will fight each other just long enough to realize that they could rule the world by working together against us.
What kind of idiotic species keeps tempting fate by producing products that can easily lead to their own extinction?
We do!!!!!   We're that special kind of stupid.

Advanced Humanoid Roboy to be ‘Born’ in Nine Months

oh no its getting crepier

" Meet Roboy, “one of the most advanced humanoid robots,” say researchers at the Artificial Intelligence Laboratory of the University of Zurich.

Their 15 project partners and over 40 engineers and scientists are constructing Roboy as a tendon-driven robot modeled on human beings (robots usually have their motors in their joints, giving them that “robot” break-dance look), so it will move almost as elegantly as a human.

Roboy will be a “service robot,” meaning it will execute services independently for the convenience of human beings, as in the movie Robot & Frank.
