Spectrum Series Focuses on Issues Posed By Lethal Autonomous Weapons

IEEE Spectrum (Nov. 3) features a series of articles on issues surrounding lethal autonomous weapons, drawn from a Challenges report developed by the IEEE Standards Research Group on Issues of Autonomy and AI in Defense Systems.   The four guest articles frame the following questions:

  • How can we talk about autonomous weapons?
  • How can we make sure autonomous weapons are used responsibly?
  • What does “human control” over autonomous systems mean?
  • Can autonomous weapons be compatible with International Humanitarian Law?
You can also respond to the questions framed through an on-line questionnaire at:  https://saforms.ieee.org/autonomous-weapons-participation/
