Many scientists and robotics experts have sounded the alarm that the parameters for robot development and interaction with humans have not been established within a foolproof ethical framework. This has led to human rights organizations and universities like Cambridge to issue formal cautions against the inevitable rise of “Killer Robots” outfitted with the same moral capacity of the human beings that have given us modern weapons of warfare. Moreover, it has been speculated that we only have a few years remaining to resolve this potential catastrophe.

This concern has spawned an unresolved dialogue at the United Nations, and even the U.S. military is seeking ways to create moral, ethical robots. Such dialogue and warnings might give one the perception that killer robots are not already here. Wrong, they are.

The global drone arms race has spawned a range of systems that are leading toward a fully autonomous matrix of war that will unilaterally direct itself on the battlefield. The U.S. and 90 other countries already employ robots on current missions, although so far they are typically restricted to specific tasks to assist soldiers with dangers such as bomb defusing. There are, however, Modular Advanced Armed Robotic Systems (MAARS) like the one below that are capable of launching grenades or firing weapons from a mobile unit.
