Got to #ORGcon at last; first session is @NoelSharkey taking about "sublethal" drones. Some horrifying images here even before autonomous
Always good to hear things like autonomous weapons being unable reliably to distinguish between soldiers and civilians (!) #ORGcon
A single-pixel change in a 3D-printed turtle was enough to make the sensor recognise it as a rifle (!!) #ORGcon
Making good headway at the UN to get a treaty banning military use of these autonomous systems. That wouldn't prevent police use #ORGcon
It is legally impossible for an autonomous system to be capable of making assessments required to accord with the UN Right to Life #ORGcon
Autonomous "home defence" done… #ORGcon
First kill by US police robot was July 2016. Remember the danger of precedent—Jamie Bulger murder case led to ubiquitous CCTV in UK #ORGcon
From question, @NoelSharkey mentions unreliability of face recognition and how easy it is to fool #ORGcon
Apparently there's a drive to grant legal personhood to autonomous robots, which would remove any real accountability #ORGcon
Anyone surprised to learn the UK uses sophistry to define autonomous weaponry in a way such that BAe can make all kinds of evils #ORGcon
Audience question reminds us that all of these technologies are dangerously biased with regard to race—due to poor software training #ORGcon
