From Eye in the Sky to Killer Robots: Rules and regulations for autonomous weapons

SWP Podcast 2022/eP 02, 02.06.2022 Research Areas

In this podcast episode by the international Panel on the Regulation of Autonomous Weapons (iPRAW), we look at some of the sticking points to consider when machines are given the power to decide over life and death. We head to Geneva to examine the process of regulating so-called “killer robots” and what various countries think should be done about them.
