JD: What about the fact, can we not control these weapons?

BM: Well it depends upon how it’s designed. You know the idea of autonomous weapons without a human loop or interface is something that we don’t allow by law in the United States. But I will tell you autonomous weapons becoming just as common as the kalashnikov. In other words you see AK-47s and kalashnikov on every battlefield of the world today in which there is at least 55 that I am aware of. And they’re going to be replaced by the drones and cruise missiles, things that crawl upon the ground that don’t look like human beings because they aren’t but they have a certain amount of artificial intelligence.
