Moratorium on fully autonomous robotic weapons needed to allow the UN to consider fully their far-reaching implications and protect human rights: Amnesty International written statement to the 23rd session of the UN Human Rights Council
Fully autonomous robotic weapons with potentially lethal effects or “lethal autonomous robotics” that can by themselves select, attack, kill and wound human targets, doing so without human intervention once activated, raise extremely serious human rights concerns, threatening the right to life and potentially undermining other human rights. In this statement Amnesty International expresses its concern that the use of such weapons would result in unlawful killings and injuries both in situations of armed conflict and in law enforcement operations.
