The U.S. Navy is capitalizing on a first-of-its-kind autonomous technology that can transform just about any surface vessel into an unmanned platform able to protect other ships or “swarm” hostile vessels.
The notion of robots as trusted companions on the battlefield is no longer limited to the scope of science fiction or TV adventure. With the U.S. Army's Robotics Collaborative Technology Alliance and its members forging ahead on autonomous technologies, warfighters may just very well have their own "Lassie" to save the day. What more can be done to enhance robotic artificial intelligence to benefit the troops? Share you ideas here.
