Episode 1.48: Keep Talking and No Robot Explodes, Part I

Dr. Larry Lewis, the Director of CNA’s Center for Autonomy and Artificial Intelligence, joins Andy and Dave to provide a summary of the recent United Nations Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons meeting in Geneva on Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems. Larry discusses the different viewpoints of the attendees, and walks through the draft document that the group published on “Emerging Commonalities, Conclusions, and Recommendations.” The topics include: Possible Guiding Principles; characterization to promote a common understanding; human elements and human-machine interactions in LAWS; review of related technologies; possible options; and recommendations (SPOILER ALERT: the group recommends 10 days of discussion for 2019).
