Why We Must Ban Killer Robots

Nations around the world are fast developing autonomous weapons, which have the ability to select their own targets. You may well be thinking of the Terminator movie series, with its Skynet superintelligence becoming aware and rising up against humanity – but this is not the problem that most campaigners worry about.
