We Can Now Build Autonomous Killing Machines. And That's a Very, Very Bad Idea
Clearpath Robotics is a 80-person company founded six years ago by three college buddies who had a passion for machine building. They specialize in all-terrain test vehicles, such as the Husky, a stout four-wheeled robot vehicle that’s used by the Department of Defense as a test machine. They make drones too, and have even built a robot boat called the Kingfisher. But there is one thing the company will never build: a robot that can kill.
