Technology soon to make drones deadlier, more autonomous

The advance drones could pose significant problems in the future. Stanford researchers Ryan Calo and Patrick Lin warn that there is a small chance that an advanced drone that does not rely on human controls, could go rouge in combat.

“Autonomous robots are likely to be learning robots, too,” Lin told the Dispatch. “We can’t always predict what they will learn and what conclusions they might draw on how to behave.”
