Killer robot assassins could be sold on the black market

Computer engineer Dr Subhash Kak told The Daily Star the parts needed would not be hard to buy on the black market.

He also warned that robots would be ready to carry out mass murder upon instruction.

Military leaders in the US and Russia have already teamed up to stop a top level move towards a total ban on killer robots.

Both countries have invested hundreds of millions developing automated troops and weapons which experts believe will eventually battle it out on the front line.

Dr Kak has previously said AI brains can become "radicalised" for terrorist attacks.
