Participation at the 2018 UN Discussion on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS)

We participated at the 2018 Group of Governmental Experts on Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS) at the United Nations in Geneva under the name of ConsciousCoders, the predecessor of ThinkTech.

There, we presented our findings during a side event on the Topic A Technological Perspective on Misuse of Available AI.

Conscious Coders held a side event on the technical aspects and risks of AI, which was highly welcomed by state representatives. The latter argued that such a clear technological overview had been lacking within the debate.

For me this look into the black box was an eye-opener to see how the algorithms behind AI work and how autonomous systems can be developed.
