Terrorists 'certain' to get killer robots, says defence giant

Rogue states and terrorists will get their hands on lethal artificial intelligence "in the very near future", a House of Lords committee has been told.

Alvin Wilby, vice-president of research at French defence giant Thales, which supplies reconnaissance drones to the British Army, said the "genie is out of the bottle" with smart technology.

And he raised the prospect of attacks by "swarms" of small drones that move around and select targets with only limited input from humans.

"The technological challenge of scaling it up to swarms and things like that doesn't need any inventive step," he told the Lords Artificial Intelligence committee.

"It's just a question of time and scale and I think that's an absolute certainty that we should worry about."



Worry! Worry more!
