A global coalition is calling on Canada and other governments to ban autonomous weapons that would select targets and use force without further human intervention or oversight.
Join a panel of four experts for a 90-minute discussion that will provide an overview of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, its principle concerns, and recent developments at the UN, including Canada’s role and possible implications of the recent federal election in Canada.
The future is coming and you’re invited to explore the ethical, political, legal, and moral implications of how we use force in armed conflicts. Full press release can be found here.
