Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems. You will also meet TEWS (tethered-electronic) weapon systems). You might see a frame of a video I made in 2004 on remote controlled surveillance e vehicles…and you might infer quite properly (now that all my NDAs in the area have expired) that I do have a fact-based vision of a very ugly future when comes to urban warfare..
Most people have never penciled the future out in this subject because it is so ugly, horrific, and anti-human. Tends to scare the hell out of you. I Robot IRL and not the happy ending.
Special Bonus: A link to video coverage of the riots in Indonesia overnight from our Jakarta Bureau.
Before we get to it though, how about some headlines, charts and coffee?
