Ive been writing and editing military science fiction for years. In that time, robots, drones, and artificial intelligence have been slipping onto real-world battlefields. When people think about robots on the battlefield, they often envision something like the Terminator or the Cylons from Battlestar Galactica. But the reality is far more nuanced than pop culture would have us believe.
That reality is laid out in Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War by Paul Scharre, who my colleague James Vincents recently interviewed. I recently picked up Army of None, and Scharre takes readers through how militaries are using autonomous tech in 2018 and the ethical and practical considerations that have cropped up along the way.
