Robot Cannon Kills 9 – Wired News

The South African National Defence Force “is probing whether a software glitch led to an antiaircraft cannon malfunction that killed nine soldiers and seriously injured 14 others during a shooting exercise on Friday.”

I hate to say I told you so, but this kind of thing is probably going to become more common with the rise of anti-personnel robots.

However, how much worse can it really get if we take weapons out of the hands of humans and place them with machines? It may just be a case of trading the cause and intent from corruption to malfunction.
