Imagine the applications and implications of robotics and artificial intelligence in 2045

Describe your idea

While we spend lots of dollars on designing new robots and autonomous systems, we need to be careful that we don't create machines that fail spectacularly when confronted with primitive, low-cost defeats (e.g., blinding optical sensors with paint bombs) and are unable to recover functionally without physical recovery and/or reboot.

So, maybe we should adopt this methodology and adopt fast and cheap single-purpose weapons? Quit trying to make everything so sophisticated and complicated and just make single-purpose single mode weapons like explosively-formed penetrators, paint bombs with strong acid paint to destroy sensors, etc.?

What makes this idea new or different?

Adversaries, especially asymmetric ones, are wily and adaptive and will look for the lowest-cost way to negate our advantage...often this is the small, simple thing the designers forget.

What will be the implications of this idea?

We need to design robotic and autonomous systems that fail gracefully and partially, that adapt while retaining a percentage of operational functionality even when confronted with novel countermeasures. Also, we need to red-team the heck out of any new system in every conceivable adversarial context to identify at least the low-hanging fruit of countermeasures and make our adversaries work to defeat our systems.

If we know or anticipate that enemies will use certain COTS equipment that requires use of the electronic spectrum, then design US capabilities that use frequencies OTHER than these so we can electronic attack them without adverse friendly effects.
