In last night’s Daily Digest, Dan the Man revealed that “the maker of the famous AK-47 rifle is building ‘a range of products based on neural networks, including a ‘fully automated combat module that can identify and shoot at its targets.” In the video below, we get another look at the Navy’s first laser weapon.
