Artificial intelligence (AI) software which can think and learn like a human is becoming increasingly capable. It powers things like voice-to-text dictation and automatic translation on your smartphone.
But its use by the military has become increasingly controversial.
Google recently faced a revolt by employees over their Maven program to help drones spot targets for the Pentagon and decided not to continue with the work.
Conversations about military AI quickly turn to robots, Terminators and the threat posed by automated killing machines. But is military AI all bad?
AI is useful because it can take over tasks that would otherwise have to be done by humans.
