UN report wants moratorium on killer robots

FILE- In this Feb. 4, 2011 photo released by the U.S. Navy and Northrup Grumman, the navy X-47B Unmanned Combat Air System Demonstration aircraft successfully completes its historic first flight at Edwards Air Force Base, Calif. A new United Nations draft report posted online this week objects to the use of weapons systems like the X-47B that can attack targets without any human input. The report for the U.N. Human Rights Commission deals with legal and philosophical issues involved in giving robots lethal powers over humans, echoing countless science-fiction novels and films.
