Drone technology is improving fast, both on the consumer as well as military side. Now more then ever, drones are having a big impact on modern warfare. The US and Russia are both working on new, tiny, swarming drones that can be launched from a rifle-like device and the race is heating up.
In recent years, drones have emerged as a major component of modern warfare and are expected to be one of the dominating forces on future battlefields.
Human Rights Watch has called for ‘an international treaty preemptively banning the development, production, and use’ of autonomous weapons through their effort called the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots.
