MAXforum: Have the Robot Armies Arrived?

Includes a Reading from Johnsville Road, by Andy Bragen, Developed in Collaboration with Daniel Fish

With a recent assassination in Iran by an autonomous vehicle did we unwittingly witness the entrance of autonomous weapons in the theater of war?  And what is a person to do about it?  

 

Featuring an excerpt from Johnsville Road, a new work by Andy Bragen, developed in collaboration with Daniel Fish, an eye-opening video, and a conversation moderated by Adaora Udjoni with AI ethicist Ryan Calo, AI ethicist and co-director of Tech Policy Lab at the University of Washington.
