In this webinar hosted by the International Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (IIGHRS), Prof. Maureen Hiebert will discuss how AI and autonomous weapons are likely to be used in the not-so-distant future, the drive to enhance soldiers’ performance through technology, and what the fielding of these technologies might mean for the legal regulation of war, civil-military relations, and the prevention and perpetration of genocide.
