Remotely Piloted Systems
This is a media curation page for the PIRatE Lab's AARR Program.  We are developing practical, low cost programs to monitor resources in our coastal zone (the land near the ocean and the ocean near the land) with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs aka "drones") overhead and subtidal Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) .  Enjoy!!

Israeli 'Kamikaze' Drones Swarm US Market, Tiptoe Towards Autonomy

Israeli 'Kamikaze' Drones Swarm US Market, Tiptoe Towards Autonomy | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
With kamikaze drones, perhaps the gravest concern among human rights advocates is the idea of suicide drones swarming with autonomy.
Leo Guardados insight:
It seems the question I asked in my previous post is being answered very quickly. The world is moving into a new age of AI weaponized drones that will be able to strike and kill the enemy with or w/o direct human involvement. It is very disturbing to think that a single person can program a drone to do its bidding, and scarier to know that the technology already exists and entering our national market. We are in fact in uncharted territory from now on. How we will be know for will depend on the choices our generation makes today.

Pentagon is scrambling as China 'sells the hell out of' armed drones to US allies

Pentagon is scrambling as China 'sells the hell out of' armed drones to US allies | Remotely Piloted Systems | Scoop.it
Washington is pushing policy changes to expand drone sales to Gulf allies in the face of Chinese competition.
Leo Guardados insight:
The continued weaponization of AI drones is concerning at the very least, but the actual implementation onto real world scenarios are outright frightening. Currently, the US forbids the sale of weaponized drones to other countries including its allies. This was probably due to protect US intelligence and assets from foreign entities, however in the modern world, the advances of technological capabilities of other counties, China, have eclipsed, and in some areas surpassed, American technology. It is downright irresponsible in terms of avoiding a technological arms race to sell these types of arms, however economically brilliant to do so. It has placed the US in a crossroads of decision in which we must decide in advancing our economies by opening new arms deals with our proprietary technology, or protect it and while allowing other nations to sell their brand.  Either decision we make, the barrier of AI technological warfare seems likely to be breached in the near future.
