BAN KILLER BOTS

- Russia · United States of America

A NEW report from Hu­man Rights Watch has an­nounced that there is grow­ing sup­port for a global ban on ‘killer ro­bots’.

The report says that au­tonomous sys­tems (ones that can find and shoot at tar­gets with­out need­ing any real in­put from a hu­man) are a “grave threat to hu­man­ity” and must be banned in­ter­na­tion­ally.

So far, 30 coun­tries have called for a ban on weapons sys­tems that could tar­get and at­tack hu­man be­ings by them­selves, but Rus­sia and the US have blocked dis­cus­sions.
