Abstract

Trust and autonomous systems, especially weapon systems, could be the most difficult technological challenge facing defense industries, militaries, politicians, and the public because the algorithms have to be trusted. Furthermore, the operator, the military, defense industry, politicians and the public need to trust the system to also follow ethical and legal rules. This paper briefly describes the trust considerations, concerns and constraints regarding autonomous weapons systems and concludes with a brief description of the current development programs and projects by the various US military services.
