Student/Young Pugwash UK are organising a conference on 7 March at Warwick University entitled Warwick Technology and Peace Conference.
It will be a multidisciplinary conference about the risks posed by emerging technologies, as well as political and technical solutions to control them.
There’ll be workshops on autonomous weapons (‘killer robots’) and the campaign against them; the impact of emerging technologies on nuclear weapons (eg. vulnerabilities, accidents etc.); and how we should predict and regulate the future.
