AI: Huge progression or monumental regression?

In modern warfare, more and more weapons are becoming automated and digital.

The first evidence of a remote drone-type weapon,an RPV (Remotely Piloted Vehicle), was seen in the decade of 1960.

 Army Pilots can sit in pods in Nevada and kill many on the other side of the world. Stephen Hawking himself predicted that the world would end due to artificial intelligence.
    
He said: “Those robots would take over the world.”

Some major companies have also started the extensive use of AI.

Google say “we think that AI can meaningfully improve people's lives and that the biggest impact will come when everyone can access it.”

Some observers have speculated as to what would happen if their plan backfired.

The Toyota Engineering Society have created a robot with artificial intelligence that can already shoot hoops better than all the professional basketball players.

But concerns have been raised that shooting hoops could turn into shooting people in wars.

Elon Musk says “AI is even more dangerous than nuclear warheads.”

He says that laws for AI must be created, but the problem is that until people see robots going down the street killing people, they don't know how to react.

Even the banking business Natwest are testing a computerized robot called Cora.
    
It looks like a human, talks like a human and acts like a human. The idea is that it will be used in high-street banks alongside human colleagues.

Even bullying is related to this issue.
    
The growth of Artificial Intelligence could boost the rate of cyberbullying and cybercrime, due to new technology being introduced all around the world.
    
Some people think robots are already taking over. The American sociologist Arlie Hochschild says “they are the ultimate job stealers.”

The development of AI could mean a more difficult future for humans.
