YT comment:

It's funny that this film was from University of Berkeley. That's the place that shuts down freedom of speech and where kids praise Communism. They're the first ones to use this tech to wipe out those who do not agree with them. These are people who see their political opponents as evil and would rather physically assault them than engage in debate.

So this is basically the left projecting their worst fears about their inner selves onto everyone else, again.

So when military defense is negative it becomes leftist?

I personally think this would be good to get rid of some more shitskins.

If you mean by murdering any and all dissent, that's not the way to go about it.

Good thing AI has a natural predisposition to hate commies.

Obviously this project in question isn't an example of that, is it?

Super easy to defeat though. Science fiction. There's no weight allowance for the shielding necessary to keep the processor from simple RF attacks. If they make them big enough for that, there's always microwaves.

That's just a matter of a different processor design. Someone else mentioned body armor, but that's just a matter of more bots being needed for the target. Someone said sunglasses to hinder facial recognition, but then anyone unrecognized can be attacked. If these get built it will be hard to defend against them. Only protected airspace, I think, via other bots.

So, what, keep blasting RF noise all over the city? Yeah, suuuuuuuper easy.

And then there's passive defenses, like helmets and body armor.

You are looking too much at the fictional weapon and not thinking of something that can walk around like a person. Or a car. Or a tank.

Facial recognition is just a ploy to get us to convert to Islam!

This is quite reminiscent of the invention of firearms. People panicked just like this back then. "A weapon that doesn't require mastery to use? One that will allow anyone to kill someone no matter their physical stature? We are all doomed! It will be impossible to find murderers. All they have to do is hide in bushes and shoot from afar. It's the apocalypse!" And then nothing happened. What this is, is the next major shift in weaponry. Just like when the world transitioned from swords to gunpowder, it will transition from guns to these types of weapons. We'll learn how to use them, defenses will be developed, and then we'll just go on with our lives. Seriously, did you think we'd be using guns forever?

The thing that scares people is how cheap and hard to defend against these weapons are going to be. In the past, really scary and effective weapons were really expensive and only within the reach of governments or state-sponsored proxies.

If you're worried about the democratization of super weapons you should read up on George Orwell's dissertation on the atom bomb. It sounds like it'll be right up your ally.

i say the world would be a better place without guns.

i'd say their fears are correct, that it has allowed for pussy warfare, where i can kill you from afar and not see the gruesome reality of death.

This is fake but a glimpse of what can easily actually happen. This was put on by a group called Stop Autonomous Weapons

Yeah it would have to be. They wouldn't use a drone with live explosives in an area crowded with people. One little malfunction and shit goes down.
