General: Robots Could Replace 1/4 of U.S. Combat Soldiers by 2030
Robots could replace one-fourth of U.S. combat soldiers by 2030, according to Gen. Robert Cone.
The Army already employs robotic warriors in limited activities.
“I think … the long-term vision is to really take people, humans, out of harm’s way and let a full-blown robot do the fighting, do the shooting, do the running,” Ulanoff said, noting that he doesn’t see that happening until near the end of the century.
Ulanoff told Hemmer about some of the robotic technologies that already exist today. Watch the video above to learn more.
