War of drones

Armed conflicts will gradually shift to the opposition between human-controlled robots (air, land and water drones). Although wars will be fought over territory controlled by the people, casualties will be minimized. In case the territory is taken over, the population can be displaced by remotely controlled machines. These machines will operate autonomously, as the problem of determining the intentions of man and a reliable identification of an ally or an enemy will remain unresolved. Less developed countries that won’t have enough money to afford any means of protection against intervention by machines won’t be able to make a stand against the enemy. However, life in the state of war will give to many of the inhabitants of these countries and territories a nudge to find and use weaknesses in the machines. Over time, this fight will transform from physical confrontation into the warfare of intelligence. Vulnerabilities in the system will lead to the theft of documents and instructions enabling management and describing the structure of robots, which will open up the possibility of taking control over someone’s army.
