Episode 112 - Killer Robots!!

via Popular Resistance

SPECIAL GUEST: Mary Wareham (of Human Rights Watch, the Campaign To Stop Killer Robots). An important question faces the human race. Will we decide to "outsource" the decision to take a human life to machines? Do we need autonomous killing machines as part of our military technological arsenal? Perhaps this seems like science fiction to you... but while most of us go about our day-to-day lives, this science fiction scenario is already beginning to come true. On this episode, we're joined by Mary Wareham, the Global Coordinator for the Campaign To Stop Killer Robots, to talk about the path our technological development is heading and whether or not we can choose to rise above what could be one of our last mistakes as a species. Recorded 10/5/2014.
