Russian weapons maker Kalashnikov is working on an automated gun system that uses artificial intelligence to make “shoot/no shoot” decisions. The Kalashnikov “combat module” will include 7.62-millimeter machine gun coupled with a camera attached to a computer system.

According to TASS, the module uses “neural network technologies that enable it to identify targets and make decisions”. A key part of neural networking technology is the ability to learn from past mistakes.The Kalashnikov “combat module” will consist of a gun connected to a console that constantly crunches image data “to identify targets and make decisions

The two most recent emerging technologies used are Target Image Discrimination and Loitering (i.e. self-engagement)

Are we ready to give machines the authority to make life or death decisions?
