Stopping killer robots and other future threats | Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

“Fully autonomous weapons are not unambiguously bad. They can reduce burdens on soldiers. … But the potential downsides are significant. Militaries might kill more if no individual has to bear the emotional burden of strike decisions. Governments might wage more wars if the cost to their soldiers were lower. Oppressive tyrants could turn fully autonomous weapons on their own people when human soldiers refused to obey. And the machines could malfunction—as all machines sometimes do—killing friend and foe alike.”
