-Machines are being considered as replacements for soldiers in the battlefield
-Vladimir Putin recognizes the advancement of cyborg bikers created in Russia
-Russia has been developing cyborgs which look like human and can learn things on their own as the future of warfare
Do you remember watching the movie “I, Robot”? If you haven’t yet then spoiler alert, robots are evil and they will take over the world someday.
It turns out some may have never watched this film or they’re not paranoid as most people are because it turns out that a military official in Russia believes that combats of the future should be led by machines, robots to be exact. These robots can fight on land, air, sea and if this is the future we’re talking about then maybe at space too.
According to the head of the Advanced Research Foundation (ARF), RIA Novosti Lieutenant General Andrey Grigoriev, he believes that future wars will be fought by operators and machines not soldiers encountering each other on the battlefield.
Just last year, Vladimir Putin, the president of the Russian Federation was present in the Research Institute near Moscow where they presented him a military cyborg biker which rode a four wheeler bike.
Will soldiers be not needed then in the future? Grigoriev doesn’t think so. According to him, soldiers will still be present but not in the battlefield anymore. The machines will do that and humans will only serve as operators.
True to the general’s belief, Russia did not stop at cyborg bikers because what they call now as “The Legionnaire” is far more advanced and a work in progress. In the future, it will come with communication systems, advanced firearms and would have protection against bullets and shrapnel.
Above a year ago, the Lieutenant General also discussed about a production of a cyborg which resembles a normal human being. This machine is expected to learn how to overcome some obstacles by running, jumping or even riding a motorcycle. In some situations, it can even stand hostile environments.
On the bright side, this will reduce the chances of a military father, son or any militant officer not coming home to his family. That’s sounds good, right? Just as long as they don’t overtake humans and kill everyone then we’re good. - HB, Kami Media
