  • "Making the case highlights the dangers of fully autonomous weapons and argues for prohibiting their development, production, and use. In the process, it provides in-depth rebuttals to 16 key critiques of such a ban. The report details the legal, moral, security, and other threats posed by fully autonomous weapons. The weapons would face significant obstacles to complying with nternational humanitarian and human rights law and would create a gap in accountability, the delegation of life-and-death decisions to machines would cross a moral threshold. Even the expectecd military advantages of the weapons could create unjustifiable risks."--Back cover.
