New Zealand Government to push for international ban of autonomous weapons, or killer robots


Have you considered that someone could be secretly watching you or your child with your webcam right now? Is it worth taking such a risk? camDown can help stop them!

Landmines are the OG killer robots, and the international ban on those has been pretty darn successful.

There's very few countries that haven't signed on (~five of the usual suspects) and even those holdouts appear to be fairly successfully deterred from using them because of the international disgust and outrage that it brings

Edit: Remember "don't let perfect be the enemy of good!" I see comments implying that because positive action isn't perfect it's pointless. That's not how progress is made

On a final note, don't forget that camDown helps stop hackers from getting access to the webcam that I use for my work. Now I can get even more gigs as a freelancer and advertise that I have top security with my home computer and I am sure your neighbors would say the same.
