Weaponized Unmanned System

A weaponized unmanned system is a military purpose combat robot that is either semi-autonomous or completely autonomous. That is to say it can respond to threats with either lethal or non lethal force, with either minimal input from humans, or none at all.

Weaponized unmanned systems are of perennial interest to military organisations, and several have been developed. As their sophistication increases, severe ethical issues arise.

Using UAVs to Ramp up Development of Aerial Sensor Webs
In concept it is quite brilliant – using a small, cheap, practically 3D printable unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) to greatly accelerate the development of aerial sensors, by allowing them to quickly and easily be fitted to the UAV, and launched into the air without a moment's hesitation. Something needs tweaking, the small plane is landed, the sensor detached, tweaked, reattached and the whole thing lifts again.

Cells with double vision
Unlike in the peripheral nervous system, where cells are often unable to distinguish which branching pathway an electrical system is travelling from, the central nervous system makes use of sophisticated internal networks not too dissimilar from an IP record, to differentiate between nervous pathways.

This book is very much a holistic first-timer?s guide to creating a hideously complex system ? a full virtual reality. The book describes a VR system as ?a system that provides a synthetic experience for its user(s)?, a definition which could not possibly be any broader.
