Must Watch: “Slaughterbots” Short by Stop Autonomous Weapons

Looking like a creepy TED Talk, this sci-fi short film from Stop Autonomous Weapons looks at a possible near future of autonomous slaughterbot drones trained to kill a specific human target.

It’s created by Stop Autonomous Weapons, a group dedicated to bringing pressure to update the 1980 Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW) to explicitly include autonomous weapons. They even set up a creepy StratoEnergetics slaughterbot manufacturer website 😉

If this future isn’t what you want, please take action at http://autonomousweapons.org/
