Formed in October 2012 and publicly launched in 2013, the global Stop Killer Robots campaign operate with over 180 members, which seek:
to build and strengthen social norms that reject autonomous killing by machine in warfare, policing, border control and other circumstances;
to demand meaningful human control, which ensures responsibility and accountability, in any use of force;
to counter digital dehumanisation and to protect human rights, now and in the future;
to build recognition that we are individually and collectively responsible for developing and shaping the technologies that frame interaction between us;
to challenge the inequalities and oppressions in society that are reproduced or exacerbated through technology.
