Virtual reality war rooms: the future of UAVs and military robots

By 2050, autonomous robots are commonplace but rarely used in the military due to their cold and unpredictable nature. Only humans seem mentally and morally fit to make the hardest military decisions. That being said, humans still fight wars – just not directly. Combining the values of human soldiers and the simple goal of preserving lives, advances in virtual reality have allowed trained human soldiers to control advanced military robots from thousands of miles away. In the event of a war, hundreds of soldiers will cram VR war rooms, seeing through the sensors of war machines they are controlling, fighting for their country – possibly against an army of a similar nature. As a result, human casualties in wars on both sides will plummet, but the immorality of AI will not dominate. As long as the machines are controlled by humans via VR terminals, the machines will fight like humans.

David Amoral not immoral. Drones & robots will be used, but tele operated armies would be open to hacking or jamming. Humans will still be on the ground. 30 Aug 2019
