In the past, engaged collaborations between civil society and politicians brought us international agreements on cluster munitions and anti-personnel mines. As important as these results were, neither these weapons, nor banning them, can be said to be world-changing.
But now the world is facing a technological development of a different calibre. Deep tech is not only disrupting markets, but military balances while putting some stark ethical and moral choices in front of us.
A few times in history technology creates a revolution in warfare. We are at such a time. It is said that today’s arms race is not about nuclear weapons, but artificial intelligence.
In this conversation, a technologist discusses autonomous lethal weapons, sometimes called “killer robots”, with an activist. Do they speak the same language? Do they understand the situation differently? Would they arrive at a common goal? Do they benefit from working together? Are autonomous lethal weapons a good thing or a bad thing? Should they be regulated? How?
