Re: "Flying robots of doom", etc.; P.W. Singer; DIY Drones...
upon this news:
U.S. Air Force says decision-making attack drones will be here by 2047
I have some thoughts:
1) It's a prediction for ~30yrs in the future. So, who knows?!?!?
2) I think what's really needed more than freedom to explore the technologies is a process by which swift, educated "mid-course corrections" can be executed upon a "bad day" incident. The actions prescribed would be determined by creators of policy, future concepts, and the technologies themselves with the objective to quickly learn from and refine the A.I., etc. that is suspect.
3) I believe P.W. Singer (Author of "Wired for War") and Chris Anderson (editor of Wired magazine & founder of DIYDrones.com) are attending and unmanned systems conference in the next couple weeks to discuss these very topics. This is a good thing.
4) Heated debates about the use, risks, and opportunities these technologies present are happening at high levels - it's a good thing there's debate about this.
5) It would be very good to have a learning A.I. that is taught by a thoughtful curriculum that rewards effective behavior based on rules of engagement, policy, etc. In a way, for every action, there could be "good job" vs. "bad job" +/- point system with the objective being to accumulate the most "good job" points.

One of the best French door fridges we've tested
A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
