Luddites200 are organising a series of meetings in London about the politics of technology, entitled Breaking the Frame. The first is on 8th July 2013.

Technology out of control? Drones, Killer Robots and the Arms Trade

Remote controlled drones have already caused many civilian casualties in the ‘war on terror’, and people in the target zones and in Britain are campaigning against their use. But the military is moving towards letting battlefield ‘killer robots’ take their own decisions without human input. Should we allow computers to decide who lives and who dies, and who is legally responsible for their actions? This first meeting in our ‘Breaking the Frame’ series on the politics of technology will address some of the ethical and ‘existential’ issues raised by the march of technocracy. There will be plenty of time for informal discussion.

When: 7pm Monday July 8th 2013
Where: Fairly Square cafe, 51 Red lion St London WC1R 4PF
