A debate piece on lethal autonomous weapons. Tomorrow the Swedish parliament in principle could (locally) ban them. My own main argument against them is that they potentially make state monopolies of violence more direct - lethal decisions are not filtered through the citizens in the army, reducing the chance of resisting unacceptable if formally legal orders.

The @ICRC has a report out about the ethics of autonomous weapons. It is based on a round-table discussion I had the honor to participate in last year. Everybody (including the military) wants responsibility-preserving systems. https://www.icrc.org/en/document/ethics-and-autonomous-weapon-systems-ethical-basis-human-control

Here is my talk on grand futures I gave at the London Futurists. Just scratching on the surface of how BIG the future can be, in so many dimensions.

I and some others answered some questions about brain emulation and its ethics for Gizmodo, triggered by Altered Carbon. I think Nicolelis needs a bit more of an argument. https://gizmodo.com/will-we-ever-be-able-to-upload-a-mind-to-a-new-body-1822622161
