An Autonomous Weaponized Drone “Hunted Down” Humans without Command for First Time

A recent United Nations report has revealed that an autonomous drone has hunted and attacked people without the input of a human commander. As well as launching artificial intelligence (AI) attacks on humans for the first time, it is not yet clear whether the drone killed people during the March 2020 attack on Libya. According to a report to the UN Security Council, on March 27, 2020, Libyan Prime Minister Fayez al-Sarraj ordered “Operation PC Storm”, which showed the use of unmanned aerial vehicles (UCAVs) against Haftar allied forces.

Drones have been used in warfare for many years, but what makes this attack different is that they operate without human input even after the initial attack, along with other inputs. “The retreat of the logistical convoy and AFF was later terrified and remotely deployed by lethal autonomous weapon systems by inhumane combat aircraft or STM Cargo-2 (see Annex 30) and other lottery smiths,” the report said.

“Deadly Autonomous Weapons Systems were programmed to attack targets without the need for data connections between operators and weapons: in reality, real ‘fire, forget and capability.” Cargo is a rotary wing attack drone designed for inconsistent combat or counterterrorism operations that, according to the manufacturers, can “effectively embed its indigenous and real-time image processing capabilities and machine learning algorithms against fixed or moving targets.” “A video of the drone demonstration showed that it fired at an animal target on a land before it exploded and detonated their explosive charge.

“Units were not trained or motivated to defend against the effective use of this new technology and generally lagged behind in embarrassment,” the report said. “Once retreated, they were subjected to regular harassment from unmanned warplanes and deadly autonomous weapons systems, which proved to be a highly effective combination.” The report did not specify whether there were any casualties or damage in the attack, although they noted that the drones were “extremely effective” in helping to inflict “significant casualties” on air missiles from the surface of enemy Pantsir S1. It is quite possible that the first humans were attacked or killed by a drone powered by a machine learning algorithm.
