Ottawa Citizen
Patrick Lin of the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists writes that there are concerns that within the next few years, autonomous vehicles — alias robot cars — could be weaponized. However, he argues, that fear is misplaced. In a recently disclosed report, FBI experts wrote that they believe that robot cars would be "game changing" for law enforcement.

Before you mail your great-grandfather's hand grenade from the First World War to the Canadian War Museum, give them a call first. Besides not wanting unsolicited packages arriving on their doorstep, the museum has to be selective about the donations it accepts each year.
