Product description


Be very, very afraid. As this extraordinary book reveals, we are fast sailing into an era in which big life-and-death decisions in war will be made not by men and women, but by artificial intelligence. Are we prepared for the most fundamental shift in warfare in history? This illuminating book will dominate the discussion and analysis of this problem--and its execution in the field--for decades to come.--Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and author of Sea Power: The History and Politics of the World's Oceans

A tour de force of the future of war technology. A former U.S. Army Ranger turned defense analyst, Paul Scharre has been there and back. He skillfully uses that background to blend personal experience and thoughtful analysis into a highly readable journey through the world of robots on the battlefield and beyond.--P.W. Singer, author of Wired for War and Ghost Fleet

A clear, well-written, and richly documented discussion of an issue that deserves deep and careful study.

[E]ngagingly detailed...Scharre offers an authoritative and sobering perspective on the automated battlefields that will very soon come to characterize military conflict.
