Robots Podcast: Peter Asaro on Autonomous Weapons

Earlier this year, there was a very exciting progress on the drone-discussions front. On behalf of Robots Podcast, I spoke with Peter Asaro from The New School in New York city about autonomous weapons systems. Peter spoke about the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots, an international consortium of NGOs working together to ban autonomous weapons systems. You can read the full coverage on Robohub.

Listen to AJung’s first podcast on the topic here:
