Oblivion? DARPA Is Developing Drones To Hunt Humans

• https://www.technocracy.news, By Tyler Durden

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency's (DARPA) latest creation ofthe Fast Lightweight Autonomy (FLA) program, a new class of algorithms for quick drone navigation in cluttered environments, reminds us of the 2013 American post-apocalyptic science fiction film, Oblivion.

Here is a short clip of Jack Harper (Tom Cruise) in the movie, battling against killer drones that use artificial intelligence to navigate and hunt 'alien scavengers', and moments before this scene, it was revealed to Harper that alien scavengers were actually humans.

While DARPA's FLA program has yet to mount a directed energy weapon with enough kilowatts to blast a human into smithereens, it seems like the agency responsible for emerging technologies for use by the military has entered into Phase two flight tests — demonstrating advanced algorithms in drones could autonomously perform tasks dangerous for humans — such as pre-mission reconnaissance on the modern battlefield in a hostile urban setting.
