  • Stop Killer Robots Campaign

    Killer Robots

    What are killer robots?
    Killer robots are autonomous weapon systems that can select and attack targets without meaningful human control. Which means the weapon system can use lethal force without a direct instruction from a human operator. This is a function that could be applied to various weapon systems, for instance a battle tank, a fighter jet or a ship.
