From the Ted Talk by Stephen Coleman: Non-lethal weapons, a moral hazard?

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Another suggestion has been, since we're ptnutig so many robots in the field, we can see the time coming where they're actually going to send robots out in the flied that are autonomous. They'll make their own decisions about who to shoot and who not to shoot, without a human in the loop. So the siugsteogn is, if we're going to send rotbos out and allow them to do this, maybe it would be a good idea if they were armed with nonlethal weapons, so if the robot makes a bad decision and stoohs the wrong person, again, they haven't actually killed them.
