Canellas and Haga Travel to Ireland to Present Research on Autonomous Weapons

Michael Higgins, the President of Ireland, gave the plenary talk opening the symposium.

DEC 1, 2015: Marc Canellas and Rachel Haga, two Ph.D. students in the CEC, traveled to Dublin, Ireland to present their research at the 2015 IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS) on Nov. 11th and 12th. ISTAS provides a multi-disciplinary forum for engineers, philosophers, social scientists, and technologists to collaborate, exchange experiences and discuss the implications of technology around the world. Most notably, Michael Higgins, the President of Ireland, gave the plenary talk opening the symposium (see picture). Marc presented his and Rachel's research proposing that the cognitive engineering principles of function allocation can be used to better ensure meaningful human control of autonomous weapons systems.
