We aim to ensure breakthrough technology is used to improve lives, not harm them.


As the scientists helping to invent, develop, study and translate new technologies that transform society, we believe that it is both our moral and professional responsibility to ensure these breakthroughs are used to help, not harm, people.

We acknowledge that intrinsic to the groundbreaking nature of technology is a need to develop new policy frameworks to ensure that society uses them humanely, fairly, ethically and legally.

The goal of Scientists Against Inhumane Weapons (SAIWE) is to engage, inform, and guide both the public and policymakers alike to ensure that the technologies we create are used for the betterment of humanity.


Key Priority Area: Lethal Autonomous Weapons Systems (LAWS)

Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be harnessed to transform society for the better, or to enact unprecedented harm. Our inaugural mission is to ensure that the weaponization of artificial intelligence does not come to pass.
