This SYP webinar looked at the role of tech workers and STEM students in efforts to challenge the rise of lethal autonomous weapons (‘killer robots’).
Our guest speaker was Taniel Yusef (WILPF UK), who is researching the views of and current regulatory frameworks for STEMists working on robot-relevant tech. Her findings will be presented to government, universities and other stakeholders alongside the UK Campaign to Stop Killer Robots’ Technical Paper in 2021.
The Chair was Niamh Healy (UCL), President of SYP UK.
