Robotics and artificial intelligence are high technologies that are pushing the boundaries of human civilization. Recent decisions made by international military organizations have launched major programs for the development of new technologies that will lead society to modernity while increasing security for the entire world population. The dynamics of technological progress are constantly increasing due to economic and military advantages and, at the same time, the desire of researchers and scientists to go beyond the limits is a result of the challenges we face on a daily basis. The physiognomy of military conflicts is becoming more complex as a result of the unprecedented development of modern military technologies, which, when combined with conventional technologies, change the approaches to planning and the principles of operational use of forces and means.
