Technology and Application of Autonomous Weapons

In June 2017 the panel met for the second time to discuss the topic of “The State of Technology and Military Operations (with regard to LAWS)”. The first report “Focus on Technology and Application of Autonomous Weapons” reflects the findings from that meeting. It examines the implications of technological capabilities and limitations for the use of autonomous weapon systems and derives elements that would be important for a definition of LAWS.
