Hasn't the UN ever seen Terminator? You can't stop Judgment Day. It's inevitable.
A new study by Human Rights Watch and Harvard Law School is urging the UN to ban the development of 'killer robots'.
According to The Guardian, “Under existing laws, computer programmers, manufacturers and military commanders would all escape liability for deaths caused by such machines.”
The report was released just before a meeting on lethal autonomous weapons systems at the UN in Geneva.
It says that while fully autonomous weapons do not yet exist, technology is moving in that direction. The report references Israel's Iron Dome, which is programmed to respond automatically to threats.
Human Rights Watch co-founded a campaign called 'Stop Killer Robots'. You can view their website here.
It is unknown what, if any role, Sarah Connor plays in the campaign.
