By 2024, South Korea will be ready to demonstrate the world community its own army, which will include military robots that can imitate animals, snakes, and insects. Informs the media agency Yonhap.
According to the representative of the agency Park Jeong-eun:
“Biometric robots will be a game changer in future warfare, and related technologies are expected to bring about great ripple effects throughout the defense industry”.
The bots will be designed to perform a wide range of tasks, including search-and-rescue operations and reconnaissance.
South Korean military personnel plan to work closely with domestic technology companies, positioning themselves as the world’s leading companies in the field of artificial intelligence.
In addition to the reduction of the birth rate of the Korean population, men are increasingly trying to evade compulsory military service. While some claim that this is contrary to their religious beliefs, others refer to mental illness, etc. Tattoos covering most of the body are another trick that frees South Korean citizens from military service.
Today, there are just over 600,000 men with 3.1 million reservists in the South Korean armed forces, although there are about 945,000 active military personnel in neighboring North Korea with a reserve of 7.6 million.
Therefore, military biorobots will be more appropriate than ever. And this concerns not only South Korea but also other countries of the world, that at the moment are also developing their own robotic solutions in various fields and areas.
