AI Assisted Remote Control Killing Machine Excerpt

A wild, bizarre story with big security implications: “The Scientist and the A.I.-Assisted, Remote-Control Killing Machine,” by NYT’s Ronen Bergman and Farnaz Fassihi. For 14 years, Israel wanted to kill Iran’s top nuclear scientist. Then they came up with a way to do it while using a trained sniper who was more than 1,000 miles away — and fired remotely.

“[I]t was also the debut test of a high-tech, computerized sharpshooter kitted out with artificial intelligence and multiple-camera eyes, operated via satellite and capable of firing 600 rounds a minute.

“The souped-up, remote-controlled machine gun now joins the combat drone in the arsenal of high-tech weapons for remote targeted killing. But unlike a drone, the robotic machine gun draws no attention in the sky, where a drone could be shot down, and can be situated anywhere, qualities likely to reshape the worlds of security and espionage.”
