Digital Dehumanisation

Digital dehumanisation is a process where humans are reduced to data, which is then used to make decisions and/or take actions that negatively affects their lives.

With growing Digital Dehumanisation, the Stop Killer Robots coalition works to ensure human control in the use of force. Our campaign calls for new international law on autonomy in weapons systems.

Join us over the next few months, as Stop Killer Robots campaigner Hayley chats with a host of interesting people to get to grips with Digital Dehumanisation: what it is, what it means for you and the world as a whole and how we can take a stand against it.
