‘a non-cooperative human subject’ vs. autonomous armed robot

what would darpa do?

you know darpa. they invented the internet that became the world wide web.  and who doesn’t love autonomous vehicle racesunmanned surveillance, laser RIFL’s‘combat zones that see’, and total information awareness? they’re making the future robot wars possible.

one of the new projects is the “Multi-Robot Pursuit System”. which basically is to make a pack of robodogs to hunt down ‘a non-cooperative human subject’. Given that iRobot last year struck a deal with Taser International to mount stun weapons on its military robots, how long before we see packs of droids hunting down pesky demonstrators with paralysing weapons?
