"Dr. Asaro is one of the founders of the International Committee for the Control of Armed Robots (ICRAC, for its acronym in English), an NGO based in the US who has spent years campaigning to limit these weapons. According Asaro, this letter represents the "concern of scientists who want to see their innovations are implemented", but at the same time are "aware of the danger involved misuse of these technological advances." The manifesto says that "there are many ways to use the AI to make the battlefield safer for humans, especially civilians, without creating new tools to kill people"." (Translated.)
