But an expert in artificial intelligence believes their introduction will come at a truly devastating cost.
Automation is killing us, warns filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin in his new documentary “The Truth About Killer Robots,” which premieres Saturday at the Toronto International Film Festival.
A key opponent of high-tech, automated weapons known as “killer robots” is blaming countries like the U.S. and Russia for blocking consensus at a UN-backed conference, where most countries wanted to ensure that humans stay at the controls of lethal machines.

Millennials get picked on a lot. It’s not completely unwarranted, mind you. Millennials have some attitudes that just have to be mocked.

We’re going to see family robots, either in the form of, sort of, digitally animated companions, humanoid helpers, friends, assistants and everything in between.”
Professor Russell states: “This short film is more than just speculation, it shows the results of integrating and miniaturising technologies that we already have.
“I’ve worked in AI for more than 35 years. Its potential to benefit humanity is enormous, even in defence.
“But allowing machines to choose to kill humans will be devastating to our security and freedom – thousands of my fellow researchers agree.
