Drones guided by thought control raise the possibility of machines instead of men being blamed for military accidents and war crimes, a leading scientist warned on Tuesday.
Fast-moving advances in neuroscience mean that pilotless attack planes controlled by an operator’s thoughts may be a reality in the “not too distant future”, according to Professor Rod Flower.
But he warned that such technology would take ethical concerns over the use of drone weapons to a new level.
The CIA’s use of drones to “take out” alleged al Qaeda terrorists in Pakistan, Afghanistan and elsewhere has already stirred up a storm of controversy, with claims of numerous innocent civilians being killed.
Prof Flower, a biochemist at the William Harvey Research Institute, Queen Mary, University of London, chaired a Royal Society working group looking at the potential military impact of advances in neuroscience.
In their report, one of a series from the Royal Society looking at the field of neuroscience, the experts call on the UK government to be as “transparent as possible” about research into military and law enforcement applications.
