Will The Robots Strike Back?
Maars, Reaper, Swords, and Predator... The face of war is changing as robots and remote-controlled drones hit the battlefields, and in the future the drones may not be remotely controlled by humans at all. They could soon be making life and death decisions all by themselves.
In this week's Konflikt in English, we look at robots and what they will mean for warfare in the future.
We speak to one of the world's leading experts on robot warfare; one of the pioneers in the US robot industry; two witnesses that have gotten used to the sound of drones hovering in the sky; and we'll pay a visit to Linköping, Sweden's robot capital. Presenter: Kris Boswell
