The concept of autonomous decision-making by machine to conduct attacks on human beings arouses visceral trepidation for many and has given rise to calls for bans before the technology can be developed. This chapter focuses on the legal dimensions of remote autonomous weapons systems, analyzing how the precautions in attack in Article 57 of Additional Protocol I might apply to such systems and how the persons creating or using such systems may be held accountable under IHL for outcomes of their use.
