Lethal Autonomous Systems and the Future of Warfare
Daniel Sukman
Is the world about to experience a robotics revolution in military affairs? Will it be as significant as the introduction of gunpowder, the levée en masse, and nuclear weapons? Daniel Sukman believes so. It’s also why we need to develop a greater understanding of autonomous weapon systems and how to use them properly.
