When Algorithms Kill – Peter Gallagher

Just a quick post to draw attention to a short piece written by my friend Peter Gallagher, from NUI-Galway. It explains all the main issues with autonomous weapon systems (AWS) really well. He covers the differences between defining autonomous/automated in terms of computer science, and regarding the AWS discourse, which a lot of scholars ignore. I think this bridge between people looking at AWS from a law of armed conflict perspective to computer science is really useful for opening up new avenues of research and collaboration. It’s also really accessible, so a great introductory piece to AWS issues.

Here is the link.
