Sci-Fi Short Film “Slaughterbots” presented by DUST


Customer pilots directed almost 3,000 precision strikes last year we’re super proud of it. It allows you to separate the bad guys from the good. It’s a big deal. But we have something much bigger. Your kids probably have one of these right? Not quite. Hell of a pilot? No. That skill is all AI. It’s flying itself. Its processor can react a hundred times faster than a human. The stochastic motion is an anti-sniper feature. Just like any mobile device these days, it has cameras and sensors. And just like your phones and social media apps, it does facial recognition. Inside here is three grams of shaped explosive. This is how it works? Did you see that? That little bang is enough to penetrate the skull and destroy the contents. They used to say guns don’t kill people people do. Well people don’t. They get emotional, disobey orders, aim high. Let’s watch the weapons make the decisions. Now trust me, these were all bad guys Now that is an airstrike of surgical precision. It’s one of a range of products. Trained as a team, they can penetrate buildings, cars, trains, evade people, bullets, pretty much any countermeasure. They cannot be stopped. Now I said this was big. Why? Because we are thinking big. Watch. A 25 million-dollar order now buys this. Enough to kill half a city. The bad half. Nuclear is obsolete. Take out your entire enemy virtually risk-free Just characterize him, release the swarm, and rest easy. These are available today. We have a distribution network, taking orders from military, law enforcement, and specialists clients. The nation is still recovering from yesterday’s incident, which officials are describing as some kind of automated attack, which killed 11 US senators at the Capitol building? They flew in from everywhere but attacked just one side of the aisle. It was chaos, people were screaming. You can see high windows, very small, precisely punctured to gain entry to the buildings. What did you do to the victim?
I just did what I could for him. The things weren’t even interested in me. They’re just buzzing — Government sources admit the intelligence community has no idea who perpetrated the attack, nor whether it was a state, group, or even a single individual — — so if we can’t defend ourselves, then we strike back. We are investing very heavily in classified defense projects. — we make it our deterrent like our nuclear deterrent. We stockpile in the millions, the billions — — at key facilities. The White House, the New York Stock Exchange, Wall Street — — are the public safe in their homes? Well we wish we had boots on the ground in every community in this country but we don’t. Ollie? Ollie? Oh hi. Hey mom. Hi Ollie honey, how’s Edinburgh today? How are all your studies going? Good. Great. Oh great. Hey aren’t we doing a video call today? I’m kinda with people so — Oh well come on Oliver, put her on. Oh no. It’s it’s not like that. Listen I see some photos here with somebody and I can see lots of likes and what’s that all about? Geez, mom. What is this video right here? No, I’m not going to click on that.
It’s just this human rights thing about oppression or whatever. Honey, honey. You’re not going into politics are you? Hey theater, just like you said it would be. — heavy traffic approaching the A720 this morning — Police are not saying this morning what prompted the alert. — claim relaxing firearm legislation would be useless against the so-called “slaughterbots.” — is to stay away from crowds. When indoors keep windows covered with shutters — — to protect your family stay inside. Mom! Mom! Oliver? Can you hear me? Oliver can you hear me? Listen to me — Authorities are still struggling to make sense of an attack on university campuses worldwide, which targeted some students and not others. The search for a motive is apparently turning to social media and a video shared by the victims exposing corruption at the highest — It’s often surprising the weapons took away the expense, danger, and risk of waging war and now we can’t afford to challenge anyone really. It’s it’s not even not even smallest fringe group, or a crank. Who could have done this? Anyone. Dumb weapons drop where you point them. Smart weapons consume data. When you can find your enemy using data, even by a hashtag, you can target an evil ideology right where it starts. This short film is more than just speculation. It shows the results of integrating and miniaturizing technologies that we already have. I’m Stuart Russell, a professor of computer science at Berkeley. I’ve worked in AI for more than 35 years. It’s potential to benefit humanity is enormous, even in defense. But allowing machines to choose to kill humans will be devastating to our security and freedom. Thousands of my fellow researchers agree we have an opportunity to prevent the future you just saw, but the window to act is closing fast.

  1. Sadly, this is almost inevitable. Even if 99% of countries were to ban AI weapons, any group with a few million dollars will be able to make these things when the AI chips become cheap enough. The only hope is to start treating each other well, so we stop wanting to kill each other.

  2. The future I just saw is already here…….history of weapons example: the sea bottom pressure mine the USN developed them but never did put them in it's weapons inventory because there was no counter measure, The Soviets Navy on the other hand did.
    Funny how China has built a EMP gun for dealing with drones.
    Summary: pieces of paper do not stop blood shed but Men and Women with cold blooded resolve do!!

  3. I've seen the lecture footage a dozen times. And I'm old enough to remember the "Dragon Fly" drones found a few decades ago.

  4. This is most likely the near future we find ourselves in. Anything but a human should decide whether or not someone gets "taken out" and that's even pretty shitty. Can't we all just get a bong?

  5. Not sure how soon this kind of advanced robots will come, but killings, snooping, spying is already happening.
    Govt all over the world is trying their best to gain access over people's privacy and life.

  6. I understand your concern but the genie is out of the bottle. Making laws now is useless. Make counter measures instead they will be more effective.

  7. If this shortfilm scared you, good, now go and youtube #andrewyang, the only US president candidate endorsed by Elon Musk, and go and find out why.

  8. Why are you guys living in this utopia ? Calm the fuck down dreamers and paranoid people from west .life is not worth this stress .seek peace.

  9. Welcome to the day where the distinction between science fiction and documentary is utterly meaningless.

    All of this and more already exists.

  10. Ironic, being shown on a medium OWNED BY GOOGLE, that has been caught on undercover camera multiple times saying how they determined "who is an enemy" and AI algorithmically discriminated against them… Caught admitting to bias, banning and trying to manipulate government and election results… (Like anti Trump biasing and skewing for Hillary during election, and conservatives ever since)

    "Do no evil" to fake out users, while in truth actually DOING EVIL.

    This tech in this fiction now but is totally plausible, and with evil like Google out there with a proven antisocial, anti freedom, anti democratic track record, do you actually trust them not to be "selective and biased" against non democrats so 2016 "never happens again"? If they stated so openly they did this, and are in front of a commission examining their contract with Killary to skew the election, just how do you think their Home products and their eavesdropping cell products and their drone products will work?

  11. If this happend, there are must someone who able to created the machine who can block the signal process inside that drone

  12. in one episode of Star Trek next Generation an entire population of a planet was done away with by small mobile A.I. weapons like this

  13. If you google "kargu drone turkey" you will find that a turkish company (STM) sells armed drones. Let me quote their homepage, "has been engineered specifically for anti-terror and asymmetric warfare scenarios. KARGU™ can rapidly and effectively respond against stationary or mobile targets (i.e. vehicles, persons etc.)"

  14. Hmmm AI is extremely dangerous on the hands of nations sovereignty and defense, Hmmm

    Let us live as a specie not nations

  15. We shouldn't be creating these dangerous weapons. They will always be used for evil. That being said, we should use those on the evil Mafia who just killed some Americans.

  16. Awesome job on this short! I was hooked from the start of the presentation. My thanks to Stewart Sugg, the actors and Dust.

  17. You play the game with the bravery of being out of range
    Zap and mame with the
    bravery of being out of range
    You strafe the train with the bravery of being out of range
    You gain terrain with the
    bravery of being out of range
    Yeah, what's the bravery of
    being out of range ?
    ROGER WATERS.

  18. Killing people with machines, that’s a good deal, but what happens when they start thinking past what you taught them !

  19. shocking. it's science but no more fiction? what could help us to defeat the beast in human kind? we do not need more and more evil weapons but understanding, communication and negotiation.

  20. IRL it's more than enough to switch off internet on mobile networks in the area when detected the traffic out of pattern
