Should we prohibit or regulate autonomous weapons? Taking the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots as the starting point, this breakfast seminar identifies a set of key ethical and legal issues relating to robotic weapon platforms.
Chair: Kristin Bergtora Sandvik (PRIO)
  • Alexander Harang (Director, Fredslaget): The Stop Killer Robots Campaign and the case for a global ban

  • Tobias Mahler (Postdoctoral Fellow, Norwegian Research Center for Computers and Law, UiO): From automated to autonomous in incremental steps- does a legal ban make sense?
