The artificial intelligence revolution is just getting started. But it is already transforming conflict. Militaries all the way from the superpowers to tiny states are seizing on autonomous weapons as essential to surviving the wars of the future. But this mounting arms-race dynamic could lead the world to dangerous places, with algorithms interacting so fast that they are beyond human control. Uncontrolled escalation, even wars that erupt without any human input at all.

DW maps out the future of autonomous warfare, based on conflicts we have already seen – and predictions from experts of what will come next.

A future war is drive by "money"

Rash rash says:

Why avoid talking about Turkish TB2 killer drone that over 80% of actions in nagoro karabah . Looks that this is smart advert for the Israel drone while hiding the the truth of the drone industry. Just advet documentary.

Dhanesh tk says:

People are now not at all talking to each other. We have become more sophisticated as technology and relying on AI to find out what is happening next door! Just have a smiling face and talk it out, everything has a solution. Enough of this war, killing and egoistic mind

Lao Tailao says:

Autonomous Weapons are NOTHING absolutely Nothing Compared to BIOLOGICAL WEAPONS….. I AM TALKING ABOUT A DISEASE SO DEADLY THAT SPREADS IN AIR IN AN AREA OF 1000 SQUARE MILE THE VIRUS STAYS….. IT IS SPREAD IN AIR….. THERE IS 2 TYPES OF THIS WEAPON…. 1 IS BACTERIA THAT STAYS LIVES IN COLD CLIMATE WINTER….. AND THEN THE MOST DEADLY 1 IS THE BACTERIA THAT STAYS IN WARM WEATHER….. FAR MORE DEADLY THEN CORONAVIRUS….. THAT IS THE MOST DEADLY WEAPON….. IMAGINE IN JUST 1 WEEK ALL OF 1000 SQUARE MILE CITY IS INFECTED WITH NO MEDICINE TO CURE IT…..

Simone Onorato says:

Fam fire and forget weapons exist since like 2010 or probably even earlier.

Chris Casas says:

good ol DARPA

Soy ad says:

armenian fascism crused in karabagh

Kamyar Shahmoradi says:

what, nuclear weapons have plenty of other uses besides being a weapon. America used them for underground mining and Russia used it to put out a fire

david draper says:

Great show how depressing,when we thought the nuclear threat was our greats.

MADE to MOVE says:

thos kamikaze drones where used on 9/11

Marina Yordanova says:

"Hasta la vista, Baby! Skynet is online!"

Patrick Pirzer says:

The scenario of "Fast war" reminds me of the book "Fail safe" in which a war by accident happens.

Nasi Padang says:

The engineers that design Harop definitely plays as Aeon in Supreme Commander.

Jarrod Yuki says:

hehe i hate humanity.

Fred Nurke says:

Poor-man's airforce.

bobcharlotte says:

Killing people is good business… money money money

Peter Theman says:

If " human-guided" drone strikes that "accidentally" kill children in Afghanistan because someone mistook water canisters for bomb-making equipment is not enough, lets trust AI for our decision making process!🙄

nesseiht gnay says:

The US has been doing AI for a long time, DARPA.
