It's OTTO!!!!!

Answer to the question is that humans should always have total control when necessary.

One question being debated in military and defense industry circles is whether or not smart UAVs should be given the authority to decide on their own when to fire their missiles or drop their bombs. Or... should a pilot still have to push that button? Yes its a much tougher issue than whether or not a 777 should have a pilot or not but the principle is the same.
