What will autonomous weapons mean for how future wars are waged and the loss of human lives in armed conflicts? That’s the topic of a new book, Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War, by Paul Scharre, a defense analyst at the Center for a New American Security and former Army Ranger.
Though homing torpedoes and smart missiles are nothing new, Scharre is concerned about the next level of autonomy, when machines can act without any human input.
Reason’s Zach Weissmueller sat down with Scharre to discuss the current state of autonomous weaponry and the implications of the technology for the future of war.
Edited by Lorenz Lo and Weissmueller. Camera by Mark McDaniel and Lo.
