Killer Robots

The technology of violence and weapons of violence is rapidly changing. Drones now allow governments to wage wars from a distant continent. New weapons and forms of warfare are looming on the horizon. The development of fully autonomous weapons, so-called Killer Robots, could bring about wars in which machines decide who lives or dies. Since July 2013, AOAV is a member of the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, an international coalition of non-governmental organizations working to ban fully autonomous weapons.
