Artificially intelligent military technologies are being rapidly developed for use in the contemporary battlefield. Such technology includes drones, sentry-robots, and missile-launch systems, as well as surveillance, reconnaissance, and decision-making support systems. With such complicated and sophisticated systems in use, it is increasingly important to ensure that these systems comply with international humanitarian law (‘IHL’). Recent debates in international fora indicate that a specific and effective treaty governing the uses of artificial intelligence in the military context is unlikely. There is, nevertheless, a very real need to ensure that systems used in armed conflict comply with IHL. This paper proposes that the best way to monitor and regulate the development of artificially intelligent military technologies is to subject them to thorough testing, verification, validation and certification processes.
