play a major role in current precision warfare against individuals.
(Contrast with the simple
of previous warfare.)
is in widespread use in combat,
and attacks on small targets (individuals, vehicles, etc.)
is a tiny "suicide" drone that can be carried in a backpack.
It is launched from a tube, and can be steered onto a target,
where it explodes.
It is already in use in combat.
Affordable quadrotor "drone"
that can be remote-controlled with iOS and Android devices.
Some people have programmed it to make it autonomous.
is a larger unmanned bomber
with extra capabilities (stealth capability, invisible to radar,
faster, aircraft carrier launch and landing, midair refuelling).
Swarm of nano quadrotors.
Autonomous (not remote controlled).

- 0.5 million dead a year worldwide,
25 million dead so far (since the 1890s).
Road accidents are the single largest killer of men aged 15 to 44.
If we could stop this,
AI could save millions of lives in the next century.
could be much faster with software-controlled cars.
The above could be done - but would probably be too terrifying a ride for the humans!
A more synchronised (but still software-controlled) flow would be easier on the humans' nerves.
