We can’t ban killer robots – it’s already too late
How do we make autonomous technological systems safe and ethical?
There are shades of science-fictional preconceptions in a 2012 report on killer robots by Human Rights Watch.
This is not to argue against the report’s horror at autonomous robot soldiers, which I for one share.
“The use of fully autonomous weapons raises serious questions of accountability, which would erode another established tool for civilian protection,” says the Human Rights Watch, and it is a fair point but impossible to place in any consistent ethical framework while nuclear weapons are internationally legal.
Besides, there’s a continuum between drone war, soldier enhancement technologies and Laws that can’t be broken down into “man versus machine”.
