Advisory request Autonomous weapon systems

In October 2015 the AIV and the CAVV presented the government with their joint advisory report, ‘Autonomous Weapon Systems: The Need for Meaningful Human Control’. AIV/CAVV recommended reviewing the relevance of the advisory report after five years to assess the extent to which its insights and guidelines are still applicable. The fields of robotics and artificial intelligence are advancing rapidly. International talks on legal, ethical and policy aspects concerning Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems, have yielded new insights. The government therefore requests that the AIV and the CAVV update the 2015 report.
