Lethal autonomous weapons systems – also called “slaughterbots” or “killer robots” – are weapon systems that use artificial intelligence (AI) to identify, select, and kill targets without human intervention. Whereas in the case of unmanned military drones the decision to take life is made remotely by a human operator, in the case of autonomous weapons the decision over who lives and who dies is made solely by algorithms.
