Role of the Drone

Originally, I researched artificial intelligent robot, but tutor said my idea is close to science fiction. So, I got back to one step and researched on the drone.

Calls “targeted killing” – they kill vastly more people than their targets, often needing to strike multiple times. Attempts to kill 41 men resulted in the deaths of an estimated 1,147 people, as of 24 November.

So, here is my initial idea.


What if drone can have artificial intelligence, so it can think by itself in emergent situation?
