Robots for Peace

In defence of drones and other military robots it is sometimes argued that robot soldiers might optimize warfare by acting less emotional and following ethical rules more strictly than humans.

This website promotes another approach: Why not concentrating on optimizing peace instead of optimizing war? It seems like a better use of societal resources.

This is a grassroots initiative, starting small, hoping to become bigger continously. It grew out of an interview with Federico Pistono at the Challengers Conference in Barcelona, September 2015. When I asked Federico about „robots for peace“, he interrupted me and said: „I like that title. We should make it a website.“

Great idea, Federico! Here we are. Let’s grow.
