Terminator Components To Be Mass Produced in 2014 To Accelerate Development
A new arms race to produce the smartest 'bots with the greatest autonomy, within the budgetary reach of all the developed nations
The first units ten years ago were what you would expect. As Moore's Law kicks in, they are going to improve exponentially. Anybody who thinks they are going to remain simple drones under the control of an operator is living in a dreamworld. They are going to fulfill the worst nightmares of science fiction writers over the past fifty years because human beings are vicious, nasty, crazy creatures who love to kill other human beings with minimum risk to themselves. It is horrible to contemplate and also true. That is the way they are. This is not the way Neanderthals were and that is why we all do not live in mud huts and eat our meat raw because of the 5% of the population who are the descendants of Abel and not Cain.
Some military think tanks will make strong arguments that they should not be built to look like human soldiers. These will be very rational, well thought out reasons they should remain looking like machines. The military brass will ignore these arguments because manboons are not rational or learning animals. Third and fourth generation will start to look as close as possible to real human soldiers because it makes killing the enemy more fun and more personal and therefore it is an inevitable development. I know how Homo Sapiens thinks and it isn't pretty at all. They are bad eggs and they will want human shaped robots because it makes the game of war much more fun for them, in the way they crave "fun."
