|Resource title||Report of the ICRC Expert Meeting on 'Autonomous weapon systems: technical, military, legal and humanitarian aspects'|
|Author/source||International Committee of the Red Cross|
|Summary text/ abstract||There is no internationally agreed definition of autonomous weapon systems. For the purposes of the meeting, 'autonomous weapon systems' were defined as weapons that can independently select and attack targets, i.e. with autonomy in the 'critical functions' of acquiring, tracking, selecting and attacking targets. There has been rapid progress in civilian robotics in the past decade, but existing autonomous robotic systems have some key limitations: they are not capable of complex decision-making and reasoning performed by humans; they have little capacity to perceive their environment or to adapt to unexpected changes; and they are therefore incapable of operating outside simple environments. Increased autonomy in robotic systems will be accompanied by greater unpredictability in the way they will operate.|
