AI & robotics

The fields of artificial intelligence (AI) and robotics are having a major impact on our lives, and this is likely to increase considerably in the future. While governments, corporations, and many scientists are keen to highlight the potential benefits, without strong safeguards, SGR believes that the risks to society and the environment will become very serious.

We have published one report and numerous other outputs about key issues in this field, covering military uses of AI and robotics - including armed drones, autonomous weapons and cyber warfare - and the potential for misuse of AI and robotics to entrench current social, economic and environmental problems.

SGR has published one report and numerous other outputs on ethical concerns related to artificial intelligence and robotics. The main outputs are listed here, together with some of the media coverage.
