Military Turing test to make autonomous war robots legal?

Not because we are experts in the field or something, but if the lawyer and engineer Chris Elliot knows a thing or two about legal issues, a kind of “military Turing test” could be the key to the deployment of autonomous systems in the legal battle. As it stands, “weapons intrinsically incapable of distinguishing between civilian and military targets are illegal” – at least according to Mr. Elliot – but by testing an intelligent war machine capacity to refine about legitimate targets and sweep a friendly, all this could change. Of course, in fact, the administration of the test remains a mystery, but given the fact that the remote control of armed robots are being used in Iraq, we believe someone is already working to try to find a solution to this dilemma.
