Event Description

Although it sounds like science fiction, the technology already exists to create weapons that can attack targets without human input. In Army of None, Paul Scharre, a leading expert in emerging weapons technologies, draws on deep research and firsthand experience to explore how these next-generation weapons are changing warfare.

What are the ethical implications of autonomous weapons? Can artificial intelligence adequately mirror human judgement?

Paul Scharre is a former U.S. Army Ranger who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the director of the Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. He is also a contributor to Foreign Policy, Politico, and The New York Times.

Fight for Liberty, with Max Boot, Philip Bobbitt, Garry Kasparov, & Bret Stephens

We live in a time when liberal democracy is on the defensive, not only in the U.S. but around the world. Yet these speakers, whose roots reflect the political spectrum, are optimistic that having a fresh discussion on moral values and basic principles such as freedom of speech, a free press, and the rule of law can help bring democracy back to health. Don't miss this valuable discussion.

Global Ethics Weekly: Science Fiction, Micro-democracy, & Information, with Malka Older

Malka Older has spent time as an aid worker in Darfur, Indonesia, and Japan, as was discussed in last week's podcast, but she also has another role: science fiction novelist. Her latest book, "State Tectonics," is the third in a series that explores the concepts of "micro-democracy" and a "global information management bureacracy" in the near future. How have separatists from East Timor to Catalonia influenced Older's novels?
