Universities must not be part of a Killer Robots pipeline
Universities are hugely important in shaping society. They train future generations, pass on knowledge and play a key role in driving innovation. Many important innovations used in everyday life, from seatbelts to touchscreens, come from university research, illustrating the many positive impacts and applications university research can have. Universities collaboration with the military is not necessarily problematic, but the institutions must safeguard their innovations to prevent them from being used for inhumane technology such as lethal autonomous weapons.
