Abstract

This paper explores discourses of automation as a key ethical concern in the
development of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems for disaster response. We
discuss problems arising from ‘humanistic’ dichotomies that pit human against
machine, military against civil uses and experts against laypersons. We explore
how it may be possible to overcome human-technology dichotomies.
