Still limited by their human controllers, the next generation of drones will be powered by artificial intelligence. AI allows machines such as drones to make decisions and operate themselves on the behalf of their human controllers Three Laws of Robotics, the set of rules that dictated how AI could harmoniously co-exist with man. For those unfamiliar, the Three Laws state:
A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human to be harmed.
A robot must obey orders given to it by humans unless the orders conflict with the First Law.
A robot must protect its own existence unless such protection conflicts with the First or Second Law
