While students are developing autonomous racers and researchers make power sliding cars, the military has built a self-patrolling robot to monitor the nation’s nuclear material. It’s designed with enough AI to patrol on its own without operator intervention at 20mph for 16 hours and detect irregularities in the desert environment. When the robot detects something out of the norm, it turns control over to a human. It seems that it would take a small patch to drop in the Avenger’s weapons and targeting to make a fully autonomous killing machine. Sweet!
