DefenseOne.com is reporting that the “MILITARY TO BUILD ROBOTS -- WITH MORALS!".
Apparently the DOD has awarded a contract to explore the possibility of developing robots that can make decisions based on “some bodies morals”. I guess the moral of either the programmer or his boss. I sure hope that he is a good guy, whoever makes the decision. If it’s like most things dealing with the government, a committee will decide and that will mean a set of morals that are entirely based one compromises.
I hope they are successful though, then maybe we can apply them to our politicians, who lack any morals at all.
