CHINA ‘LONG-TERM STRATEGIC COMPETITOR’ TO US SAYS MARK ESPER
China is selling its most advanced “fully autonomous” military drones with fears that it could lead to a bloodbath in the Middle East.
The Asian superpower is reportedly selling AI-enhanced combat drones to the region, with potentially disastrous consequences.
Prof Toby Walsh, of the University of NSW, in Australia, said: “They would be impossible to defend yourself against.
“Once the shooting starts, every human on the battlefield will be dead.”
This could be as much of a game changer as the machine gun was in the first World War.
Maybe more so.
