Autonomous weapons, also known as killer robots, are a growing concern, as they are capable of operating without human intervention, potentially leading to unintended consequences and violations of international law. AI, on the other hand, has the potential to revolutionize various sectors, including defense, but also poses ethical and security risks. The event will address the need for international regulations including the proposed European legislation on AI and take a closer look at what governments can do about it.
