There is a video about the Drone weapon technology that has been floating on instant messaging apps from last few days.

The 7-minute 41-second long video is showing how the small drones can be used as a Lethal Weapon in killing bad people precisely without any casualties.


Video showing the owner or the CEO of the company demonstrating the technology to an audience in an Apple-like event, talking about how small drones have the ability to kill half how the city the bad half.

The little killing drones termed as ‘Slaughterbots’, do not require any interference from a human as they are all AI-based. And just require profiling of the target such as age, sex, ethnicity.

People are forwarding this video to instant messaging apps assuming that this technology already exists and it’s an actual demo. Which is not the case.

The scene is part of a short film that was released a couple of months ago. At that time the fictional video got coverage from several media sites, which also raised this concern of what good or bad will the technology work in future.

As much as it is mind-blowing to watch the fictional video, it is scary at the same time, it shows us the future that is not so distant, what makes it scary is what happens if this technology gets into the wrong hands, because if it has a capacity to kill the bad people just by profiling, it can also very well kill good people by profiling.

Looking at how fast the Drone Technology has evolved in last few years and AI already capable of doing mind-blowing things, Drone weaponry Technology does not look far. Question is, when is it going to happen? Tomorrow, next week, next month or next year?
