A British spy dropped the news during a counter-terrorism meeting in London, saying many of the robots will be autonomous trucks.
But some much more exciting, both the U.S. navy and air-force already use robotic assistance in their military.
With help from companies like DARPA, Boeing and Rolls Royce, unmanned submarines are being developed for exploration, carrying cargo and combat. Some are even capable or staying at sea for three months with no crew or remote. One of the benefits of a robotic military is keeping soldiers out of harm’s way.
But it could also be problematic, research shows 90% of people killed drones are not the targets. So hopefully we don’t move too fast.
