Headed by Nobel Peace Prizewinner Jody Williams, a group of activist members of "The Campaign to Stop Killer Robots" on Wednesday in Buenos Aires called for a global ban on this kind of cyber-weaponry.

By "killer robots," the group means weapons programmed with algorithms that allow targets to be automatically selected by the weapons themselves, in contrast to drones, which need a human piloting them that launches the actual attack.
