‘Slaughterbots’ film shows potential horrors of killer drones
The film is the researchers’ latest attempt to build support for a global ban on autonomous weapon systems, which kill without meaningful human control. In the film, thousands of college students are killed in attacks at a dozen universities after drones swarm campuses. Some of the drones first attach to buildings, blowing holes in walls so other drones can enter and hunt down specific students. A similar scene is shown at the U.S. Capitol, where a select group of Senators were killed.
