Military Review

Who will say his last word in the war - a man or a robot?

65
Humanity cannot afford the risk of losing the right to kill with machines. If someone thinks that this statement from some fictional universe of the movie “Terminator”, in which the Skynet network of supercomputers has unleashed a war to destroy humanity, he is simply greatly mistaken. This is quite the official call of the UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial executions, arbitrary executions or summary executions, Christophe Haynes. This 30 specialist in May 2013 spoke at the UN Human Rights Council for introducing a global moratorium on the manufacture and placement of lethal autonomous robotic systems (Lethal Autonomous Robots or LARs).


“If ordinary UAVs still need a person at the controls who would be responsible for deciding on the use of lethal force, LARs are equipped with computers that are able to decide who will be their next goal,” worries a law professor from SOUTH AFRICA. He is confident that a war without proper reflection is a mechanical slaughter, meaning it is human thinking. Haynes doubts that even the most sophisticated of the AI ​​samples are able to follow the main rule of any modern armed conflict - to distinguish between legitimate military objectives and objects. This is especially relevant, since the prospect of using artificial intelligence in military operations is a matter for the near future, perhaps this future has almost arrived.

One of the opponents of developments in the field of military robotics, Chris Jenks, who is a professor of military law, notes that many have misunderstood that autonomous defense systems have been around for about 20 years and more than once their mistakes led to human victims. In the course of both military conflicts in the Persian Gulf, the American Patriot air defense missile systems mistakenly identified the enemy and shot down the American plane in one of the wars and the British plane in the second. And 5 years ago in South Africa there was a tragedy that claimed the lives of 9 soldiers. Then the rapid-fire automatic "gun-robot" went out of control and opened indiscriminate fire, it stopped, just shooting the entire ammunition.

The first fully autonomous UAV (Condor project) was created by DARPA back in 1988, and the Israeli army has been armed with Harpy automatic UAVs - projectile shells that are designed to destroy radar stations for more than 20 years. Also in service with the American fleet The Phalanx missile defense system is located, which has tasks for the automatic detection, tracking and destruction of air targets, including aircraft and anti-ship missiles. Ground forces also have an analogue of this complex - the C-RAM system. In addition, not so long ago, the U.S. Navy launched another X-47B UAV, which is able to independently carry out its flight plan, and human intervention in its control is necessary only in emergency cases.

Who will say his last word in the war - a man or a robot?
Samsung SGR-1

In his report, Haynes cites several more examples of the use of robots, some of them have much more in common with the "terminators". For example, South Korean security robots, which were designed by the military unit of Samsung. They are currently serving on the border of South Korea with the DPRK. And although the actions of these robots are still managed by a human operator, they can function in fully automatic mode.

Samsung's robot robot was designated SGR-1 (Security Guard Robot). Initially, it was created specifically for the protection of the demilitarized zone on the border of the two Koreas. This robot is a combination of a series of monitoring and surveillance devices, as well as “suppression”. Its structure includes observation and detection devices, the robot is equipped with a highly sensitive high-resolution video camera, a laser range finder and a thermal imager. Installed on it means of suppression can be very diverse - from exotic acoustic guns, causing the enemy dizziness and temporary deafness, to gas and firearms weapons.

The SGR-1 robot guard is able to automatically recognize targets at a distance of up to 4 km. in the daytime and up to 2 km at night. It can activate and direct the detected enemy to various means of suppression, and also - depending on the program of the mission - to make independent decisions about the need to use weapons. The accuracy of the shooting of the robot is ensured by the installed stabilization system and is controlled by a special target tracking module, which can function in both manual and automatic mode. Moreover, this robot is not self-propelled, it is stationary. In military terminology, the definition of “guard” than “patrolman” would be more appropriate for him.

Created their own combat robots and the UK. In particular, an automatic UAV is being developed by BAE. Taranis drones, built using stealth technology, are able to carry out intercontinental flights and can carry a variety of weapons on board to destroy both ground and air targets. The first test flight of a Taranis UAV will have to be made already in 2013. It received its name in honor of the Celtic god of thunder. The development of the project is conducted by the aerospace division of the company BAE and МD, starting from December 2006. This project has already cost the creators of 223,25 million dollars. As experts believe BAE, their drone Taranis will be the most invisible and will have increased autonomy.

Drone taranis

According to published materials, the Taranis drone will combine a number of modern technologies that will allow the on-board computers to be used to perform complex air maneuvers, define targets and evade threats. Flight managers will only have to confirm the attack. Despite the fact that the drone looks like a toy - it is not a toy at all. The device has an impressive size: the wingspan of the drone, made by technology "stealth", is about 10 meters, and its length - 11 meters. In flight, the device will be able to develop supersonic speed.

However, according to British Foreign Minister Alistair Byrd, London is not going to develop automatic robotic systems for use in war. Yes, and the United States back in November last year, through the official directive of the Pentagon, they said that they wanted to preserve “the appropriate level of human participation when using force. This undeclared moratorium will last for 10 years. By the end of this period, they believe in the United States, the Pentagon will be completely puzzled by the issues of repelling the threat posed by the PRC, and the need for an adequate response dictates the continuation of work in creating and improving military robotics.

True, it should be noted that from the full-fledged AI, which could independently determine its actions in the theater of hostilities, all the systems described above are far enough. So, both in London and in Washington, they can declare the need to find the human hand on the control panel only because, in reality, it is simply impossible to do without human control. In turn, employees of the US National University of Defense believe that the design and creation of fully autonomous combat systems seems quite likely in the next few years.

In the creation of artificial intelligence also marked significant advances. The American company IBM is actively testing its Watson supercomputer, which has access to 200 millions of pages of structured and unstructured information that a computer can process in just a fraction of a second. Since February this year, the Watson computer has been officially used to diagnose and treat cancer. The supercomputer operates with “big data”, statistical information from many oncological clinics, which generalization would not be possible for ordinary doctors.

Watson supercomputer

The Watson supercomputer, developed by IBM engineers, is able to completely replace the automated systems that respond to customer calls. “Artificial Intelligence” will be able to independently provide advice on smartphones and tablets, by phone, in online chat rooms, SMS and email. The technology created by Nuance is responsible for processing the human voice in it. For example, the Watson supercomputer is able to explain all the subtleties of savings instruments and pension savings to clients of the bank, and to subscribers of cellular networks how to connect this or that service to replenish the balance of their account.

This supercomputer became famous after being able to defeat American experts in the television game Jeopardy in 2011! (analogue of "His game" in the Russian Federation). Since then, the supercomputer is in very high demand from American commercial organizations. IBM engineers spent more than 4's on creating it. The Watson supercomputer is able to perform on the order of 80 trillions of operations (teraflops) per second, its RAM is equal to 16 terabytes, and the heart of the computer is a processor running on 2800 cores.

One of the most complex programs written for it is DeepQA, which can handle incoming questions posed to a computer in natural language. It is the understanding of the human proposal that distinguishes the Watson supercomputer from the ordinary search engine, which is only able to produce a list of results in response to specified keywords.

Another well-known corporation, Google, is also working on creating artificial intelligence. Based on the developments of the Laboratory of Artificial Intelligence at Stanford University, the company's specialists have created a prototype of a fully autonomous car. The on-board computer of such a car is able to track a huge number of various environmental parameters, even the mimicry of drivers who move in the neighborhood of the car. 12 of such machines by August 2012, were able to overcome 500 thousands of miles. (in total) without a single accident. Cars moved along the roads of California and Nevada, 2-s from 3-s of the US states, in which the free movement of such devices is already allowed at the legislative level. These systems are self-learning, which, according to their creators, can be considered a breakthrough in the field of robotics.


Naturally, such developments are of interest to the military, who also conduct their work in this direction. Very soon, many modern types of weapons can get a full-fledged artificial intelligence. And that means the question of who will say the last word in the war - a person or a robot - is becoming increasingly relevant.

      This is not necessary. The next generation will be adapted. Vitality is a too vague concept.
      Insects have obvious problems with intelligence, moreover, the algorithms for their behavior have long been understood and implemented. You want to say that insects are not a successful species of living things? I think successful.

      I would not get so excited, remembering that the intelligence of robots is endowed by a person who has potential "transcendent" abilities that will only develop. In the intelligence of a robot, a person, first of all, will strive to incorporate what he himself is not yet capable of.

      2) There is no need to try to make a device smarter than a person - 2 aspirations are laid in it: to find and destroy, to remain unharmed. You can programmatically polish these 2 "aspirations" to their perfection.
      A person has thousands of aspirations and they are constantly changing and that is why we are more complicated, more perfect and more interesting than any program.

    The development of robotics should certainly be a new impetus and the basis for the transition to a new technological structure of society. What was global computerization at one time?

    However, the question raised by a specialist from South Africa cannot be ignored. Until robotics is sufficiently advanced, its use in military structures can be safely forgotten.

    According to true artificial intelligence, there have been no successes and not even the slightest, all that is now is simply enumeration of options at an ever-increasing speed, even if a quantum computer is made, the machine still does not learn to think, all the same enumeration of options, to play robot chess taught but there is such a game GO seemingly simple even primitive any schoolchild is able to play it but even the most powerful computer is not able to beat this schoolchild until there is an understanding of how the brain works, how it thinks about any real AI, there’s no question, and in this direction (at least officially) at least some progress has been around for 50 years ..

      What is intelligence? If this is the ability to generate new information modules, then you can simply combine the already known modules in random order and check each case. With super-productivity, this is not difficult. And to study is just to remember and take from memory. If a person needs time to learn how to repeat the same action with equal quality, up to automatism (to become a professional), then the robot will do this on the second attempt.
      Another thing is intuition. But perhaps professional intuition is more likely a subconscious (very fast, therefore inconspicuous) processing of statistics from memory. And this AI is easy to handle.

      And he is not needed "for real". The AI ​​tank driver doesn't have to write poetry. The whole question is not in superintelligence, which is able to take such a machine out of all situations, but in the price for 1 copy.
      I think they will be able to create, even if not the most intelligent, but relatively inexpensive combat robot, capable of killing everything that moves from certain directions. And then they will produce a whole army of these robots - both flying and all, combine them into a single inf. a network with the possibility of strategic calculations through whatever the next supercomputer ...
      And hello - this is it, the future.

        There are such units you write about a long time ago, but the main catch is with a super computer, that is, the arms were made by the legs, but the brain can’t .. they don’t know how, it’s just that there is no progress in this area, the situation or the task that the teeth of any even semi-literate conscript (in its simplicity is not even noticeable and is not a problem) for the most modern computer is fundamentally insoluble. read more serious scientific literature on this topic, described the simplest experience of taking a mug from the table, it was miserably failed because the slightest change in the parameters was perplexing, they tried to hammer millions of images of mugs from different angles and distances into memory, wrote complicated algorithms for doing everything empty ... Programming and the ability to think are completely different things, if you read how you learned to play and win a chess machine, you will understand that there are factors that do not change and there are very few of them compared to real life New.

      laughing

      Until the entire chain from the extraction of resources and energy to the production of a shot at a person is not automated and is not subject to this "Skynet", the civilization of robots has no evolutionary future.
      And so, well, this drone is killed by a bunch of people. The ammunition, energy and all will end ... the robot died.
      He does not have a mouth-stomach to eat grass and boogers. And man has it.
      He doesn’t have knobs to repair himself, to mine metal for the manufacture of components, to repair a power plant or to extract oil so that he can fill up gas tanks. The components will end and what? ... But the person has all this!
      A man without a leg or arm, in a difficult time for his homeland, can recover from a wound and work for the common good. What can a crippled drone without a radar or with a damaged engine? And how can he get rid of cockroaches and rust in his head 50-100 years after humanity defeats?

      So, dear colleagues, it’s too early to drop us. Us evolution has grown and polished millions of years to survive. :)

      The war will probably continue between machines that make themselves. As there are evil or good people, good people will be inculcated in machines and protection, and evil - destruction. Because only armada of robot defenders will help humanity to defend themselves against the armada of terminators.

    But perhaps professional intuition is more likely a subconscious (very fast, therefore inconspicuous) processing of statistics from memory. And this AI is easy to handle.

    Exactly. It remains only to create algorithms for processing these statistics ...

    And this means the question, who will nevertheless say his last word in the war - man or robot - is becoming increasingly relevant.

    No, the question will never arise so, for the axiom is that the war will not be won until the victor’s foot enters the defeated territory. Those. decision to win - defeat for people, not to mention decisions to start a war, to use the same robots, strategy, tactics, etc.

    "The troubles are forgotten, the run is stopped, the robots are working, not the Man ...". In the light of the coming robotization of weapons, the old song of Syroezhkin sounded completely different. Although ... The electronics were also "dual-use". wassat

    Jokes, jokes. But even our modern children know (brought up on all this elekto ...) that the robot and all other super electronics without a human being are nothing.

    For now, perhaps for the best - this question is rather rhetorical. The given examples of losses as a result of "friendly fire" are rather arbitrary, since similar cases occurred during the Second World War and earlier without the participation of any automation, not to mention the elements of artificial intelligence.
    "Very soon, many modern types of weapons may receive full-fledged artificial intelligence in addition." A very projectile statement. How soon: a year, five, ten years, or maybe fifty or two hundred and fifty. And everything will be soon, especially against the background of geological eras. Introduction to the Armed Conflict Toolkit of Artificial Intelligence Elements under human control when carrying out some limited manipulations with technical means and weapon systems associated with any activity on the battlefield and around - this is probably a closer prospect in this direction.

    Of course robots are very promising. But you should not lose your head here, otherwise we will get a layout of the "Star Wars" type of the 21st century. And instead of a technological breakthrough, economic collapse.

    Man naturally. never will robots have such vitality and the ability to adapt to changes in the external environment that people are endowed with. Yes, and with intelligence, robots have always had and will be tense.

    I do not think so. used to think that a person will never rise into the sky .. into space, .... everything in life changes.

    Dear Sirs, leading the argument that robots are the inevitable future, they will say the last word in the war, etc. you forget one important circumstance - for all technological breakthroughs it is impossible to make these combat systems in any significant quantities, if only because of financial considerations - they are so expensive that to fight only with them means to destroy the country's economy faster than the enemy ... I think now objections will come that they are expensive only now, then they can cost cheaper, etc., but you don’t think that it’s much more efficient to use artificial intelligence not to control shock drones (all avno losers, some how perfect they were not), and for the management of the economy and the system of automated production and development of the state, and with the help of the economic impact on other countries, in principle, exclude the possibility of any military resistance? This is cheaper, more reliable, and more practical ... But nevertheless, no one has yet introduced it - and to control the course of hostilities seems to me a much more difficult task, and the return is much less ...
