China's Robots Will Triple Bomb and Ammunition Production Capacity by 2028

 

China’s artificial intelligence robots could triple the country’s production of bombs and shells by 2028, according to a senior scientist involved in the program to boost ammunition productivity.
Xu Zhigang, lead scientist with China’s weapon system intelligent manufacturing program, told the South China Morning Post last Wednesday that smart machines—fives times more productive than a human—have begun replacing ammunition workers in a quarter of the country’s factories.
The smart robots have been fitted with man-made “hands and eyes,” he told the paper. With these anthropomorphic qualities, they are able to assemble deadly explosives, including artillery shells, bombs and rockets, according to Xu.
