On the battlefield of today, technology is not only changing how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws, and ethics that surround war itself. From remote-controlled drones taking out terrorists in Afghanistan to the Pentagon researching tiny robots the size of flies to carry out reconnaissance work now handled by elite Special Forces troops, this is only the start of an era where new technologies will profoundly alter warfare. The Brookings Institution's Peter W. Singer examines technology's impact on warfare and the issues that will develop as our wars are increasingly handed over to machines.
