Gruesome footage put together by AI experts shows small drones descending on a classroom and killing pupils by blowing up their heads.
The film – to be show to United Nations (UN) today – stresses the danger of autonomous weapons that pick and destroy targets without instruction.
“It is not science fiction”
AI scientist, Stuart Russell, will present the film today at the UN Nations Convention on Conventional Weapons hosted by Campaign to Stop Killer Robots.
Russell told The Guardian: “The technology illustrated in the film is simply an integration of existing capabilities. It is not science fiction.
“In fact, it is easier to achieve than self-driving cars, which require far higher standards of performance.”

And it is being suggested that killer tech that makes its own decisions before killing by its own accord will be possible to design in the near-future.
Russell added: “Pursuing the development of lethal autonomous weapons would drastically reduce international, national, local, and personal security.”
It is also feared that enemies of the West – including nuke-mad North Korea or terror unit ISIS – could develop the technology leading to fatal consequences.

Campaigners are calling on the UN to ban their development worldwide.
Daily Star Online previously revealed how physicist Stephen Hawking claims humanity could be destroyed by AI in the near future.
He said: “Unless we learn how to prepare for, and avoid, the potential risks, AI could be the worst event in the history of our civilisation.”
