- Trends toward lethality -- Human failings in the battlefield -- Related philosophical thought -- What people think : opinions on lethal autonomous systems -- Formalization for ethical control -- Specific issues for lethality : what to represent -- Representational choices : how to represent ethics in a lethal robot -- Architectural considerations for governing lethality -- Design options -- Example scenarios for the ethical use of force -- A prototype implementation.
- "Expounding on the results of the author's own state-of-the-art research, Governing Lethal Behavior in Autonomous Robots explores how to produce an "artificial conscience" in a new class of robots, humane-oids, which are robots that can potentially perform more ethically than humans in the battlefield. The author examines the philosophical basis, motivation, theory, and design recommendations for the implementation of an ethical control and reasoning system in autonomous robot systems, taking into account the Laws of War and Rules of Engagement."--Back cover.
