Cyberwar and Drones

PRIO’s (The Peace Research Institute Oslo) KRISTIN B SANDVIK is coming to Umeå for a lecture on Cyberwar and Drones. Is there such a thing as cyberwar, or is it just a computer security problem? Where does international law stand, and is this the future of warfare? In the computerization of todays society, the use of automated robots in armed conflict raises new questions of responsibility . What happens to humanitarianism and judgment when robots can make decisions on their own and kill without human interaction? A lecture on technological advances in warfare and the insufficient international law concerning them.
