Squeebee: What I would love to see is some of this drone technology in the hands of the Coast Guard. Someone swept overboard? Pleasure craft lost at sea? Deploy a set of high-speed drones that fly programmed search patterns that can locate them within a matter of minutes.
lymond01: Recalling, once again, the original Star Trek episode where two countries fight with computer simulations to preserve their infrastructure (roads, buildings, libraries, schools, etc). So humans get a warning their area has been hit, then all affected walk into an incinerator.SPOILERKirk, at the end, blows up one of their computers. The leader says, now the other side will think we are really attacking! There will be destruction, mayhem, horror!To which Kirk replies, then you will know war and knowing war, you may choose to end it.And this is where we are heading -- we are preserving the US soldiers but using drones means it doesn't cost us anything to kill. At least when we put our own people in harm's way, we might consider not fighting at all. Now we can accidentally obliterate children with impunity.
SpdrJay: Hmmmmm.....what they need now is an artificially intelligent computer system to control many more drones.
