    DescriptionIn this interview, Professor Robert Sparrow of Monash University speaks with EIA managing editor Adam Read-Brown about his work on ethical issues raised by new technologies. The conversation focuses on Autonomous Weapon Systems (AWS), often referred to as “killer robots.” Unlike drones, which are remotely operated by humans, with AWS the robot itself determines who should live or die. What are the ethical arguments for and against these killing machines? Sparrow’s article for EIA on this topic appeared in the Spring 2016 issue.
