Governments, militaries, and companies are rapidly developing weapons systems with increasing autonomy, using new technologies and artificial intelligence. These ‘killer robots’ dehumanise people and reduce us to stereotypes – simply data to be processed. Autonomous weapons could be used in conflict zones, by police forces and in border control, with terrifying consequences for humanity.
We believe machines should never be allowed to make a decision over life and death.
We have an opportunity to act now before technological developments have gone too far. Join us in working to draw a legal and moral line, to protect our humanity and make the world a safer place.
