killer robot


Definition The most popular term for an autonomous weapon, that would be programmed with AI (artificial intelligence) algorithms which could be developed by the military complex, if allowed.

No longer the stuff of dystopian science fiction (California has already had one as governor), modern weaponry is sufficiently sophisticated that the deplorable may soon become deployable. 

Synonyms Autonomous weapon, robotic weapon, roboweapon, self-directed robotic killing machine
