Jane Doe, Stop Killer Robots

As humans, we approach everyday decision-making through the lens of our own individual moral codes, each shaped by our culture, class, beliefs, and ethics.

These moral codes help us make the 'right' decisions in complex situations. But ask yourself, what would your answer be if you were faced with a complex moral problem - what would your moral code tell you if that decision meant the difference between life and death?

Autonomy in weapons systems is a human problem at its core, and 'Killer Robots' (Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems, or LAWs) completely change the relationship between people and technology by putting life and death decisions in the hands of machines. Exploring the limits of binary thinking, we investigate the human condition in relation to moral situations.

We pose hypothetical life or death questions to interviewees and, devoid of context they have only binary decisions to choose from - yes or no. Kill, or don't kill. With a series of experts with first-hand knowledge of thIs fast-developing technology, we delve deeper into each of the subjects raised, looking closely at these moral issues and their impact in relation to autonomous weapon systems.

Immoral Code contemplates the impact of Killer Robots in a digitally dehumanised future. A near-future where human morals are obsolete. It's an increasingly familiar prospect where decision-making is a digital process and the result of algorithic processing - devoid of the context that comes from human insight. We ask in what context is it morally and socially acceptable to take a life? And importantly, would a computer know the difference?

Governments and private companies are actively developing weapons that automate the decision to use force, without restriction or limitation. We believe that technology should be used to empower all people, not to reduce us – to stereotypes, labels, or just a pattern of 1’s and 0’s.
