Autonomous Weapons Systems: Recent Events and a Response | mentions Michael Schmitt/Jeff Thurnher
We disagree strongly, though, with the proposal that the UN — and in particular the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights — play a lead role in developing a legal and ethical framework to regulate these systems globally. As we argue in our paper (and as US Naval War College professors Michael Schmitt and Jeffrey Thurnher have shown in doctrinal detail) existing law of armed conflict already provides a robust set of baseline requirements and standards.
