July 30, 2017: One Step Closer To Real Ogres
According to this report from edgylabs.com, Kalashnikov is building a gun mount with a neural network. It's designed to be at least partially autonomous. Definitely a proto-Ogre development.
The report makes the point that full machine autonomy on the battlefield is not necessarily a bad thing. A neural network could learn to distinguish civilians much more accurately than soldiers in combat can be expected to do. For a fictional take on that development, see "Malak," by Peter Watts.
