Hasta La Vista, Baby

Someone's been watching too many Terminator movies:

INCREASINGLY autonomous, gun-toting robots developed for warfare could easily fall into the hands of terrorists and may one day unleash a robot arms race, a top expert on artificial intelligence says. "They pose a threat to humanity," said University of Sheffield professor Noel Sharkey
But there is a solution: outright ban on autonomous weapons systems. "We have to say where we want to draw the line and what we want to do – and then get an international agreement," he said.
It appears it's not just the robots whose intelligence is artificial.

Cool pics, though.
