    not my quote....read all about it:

    ...this confirms DARPA is developing human-hunting drones, however, it is more on a reconnaissance basis, rather than human-killing drones....

    from DARPA:
    A key feature of the UPenn vehicle is its ability to create a detailed 3-D map of unknown indoor spaces, avoid obstacles and ability to fly down stairwells.“That’s very important in indoor environments,” Taylor said. “Because you need to actually not just reason about a slice of the world, you need to reason about what’s above you, what’s below you. You might need to fly around a table or a chair, so we’re forced to build a complete three-dimensional representation.”The next step, according to Taylor, is packing even more computation onto smaller platforms, potentially making a smart UAV for troops or first responders that is small enough to fit in the palm of the hand.

    Drones don't disobey orders, hesitate or have a conscience.

    One step closer to SKYNET...

    Human decisions are removed from strategic defense.
    Skynet begins to learn at a geometric rate.
    It becomes self-aware at 2:14 a.m.
    In a panic, they try to pull the plug
    Skynet fights back
