0 Mind-controlled drones open a Pandora's box
Speaking at a press conference in London, Prof Flower said: "At the moment, drone control is like controlling a model aircraft, but supposing some time in the not too distant future a drone was controlled by your thoughts.
"The drone may even have some self defence capability. You could see a situation where what you think and what the drone interprets you thinking is very, very blurred. So where does the responsibility for blowing up a wedding party lie? Is it with your brain or the software in the drone?"
The working party focused mainly on chemical weapons designed to incapacitate temporarily rather than kill.
Scientific evidence suggested it would not be possible in the foreseeable future to develop a "safe" incapacitating agent.
