Breakfast Briefing with Iben Yde

Breakfast Briefing with Iben Yde

AI, autonomous systems and human control with selection and engagement of targets – a task-specific approach


In her upcoming report, Iben Yde develops a task specific approach to the analysis of the legality of the use of autonomous and AI enabled systems in armed conflicts. In order to infuse further granularity to the debate about LAWS and AI, she will explore the changes in the role of human operators in automated warfare and break down targeting law provisions into concrete tasks to be able to assess the nature and extent of human control necessary in each case.
