Killing By Machine


[Killing By Machine – Article 36]


In current practice, there is an expectation that human control is exercised over the use of weapons. this means when, where and how weapons are used; what or whom they are used against; and the effects of their use. Increasingly autonomous weapon systems threaten to erode what we have come to expect in terms of human control over weapons. Weapon systems that operate outside of the parameters of meaningful human control are neither ethically acceptable nor legally permissible.
