“Canada and the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots”: Video now online

Posted on Friday, November 27, 2015

On November 5, 2015, The Centre for Law, Technology and Society held a panel that provided 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.

“Killer Robots” might sound like a sci-fi thriller, but the threat they pose to international security is very real. A global coalition, which includes Common Law’s Professor Ian Kerr, is calling on Canada and other governments to ban autonomous weapons that would select targets and use force without further human intervention or oversight.
