This edition of the Peace Review focuses on the issue of ‘Lethal Autonomous Weapons’. Dr Ellwood’s paper looks at the historical trends in weapons technology that have led us to this point, arguing that the weaponization of AI technologies opens up a final phase in the process of ‘delocalization’, by severing the link between human agency and its lethal manifestations.

Dr Ellwood is a mathematician and theoretical physicist (bio here).
