(THE HILL) — Mary Wareham wants to be clear: This isn’t about the Terminator.

At the same time, she knows a flashy name will get more attention: Hence, the Campaign to Stop Killer Robots.

“This is about framing a future threat. One way in which we’re trying to do that is not by using images of the Terminator and talking about far-off depictions of military application of artificial intelligence,” Wareham said in a recent interview with The Hill. “We’ve been more interested in looking at existing weapons systems today because there are many now that have got some autonomy in them.”
