Interesting chats with Mike and Josh

War-Games and the Dehumanisation of War

Mike and Josh are joined by Ben Goldsworthy to discuss the issue of dehumanisation in warfare. Topics covered include drone warfare, cyberwarfare and the nature of war itself.

Autonomous Weapon Systems and Killer Drones

Mike and Josh talk about the role of autonomous weapon systems (AWS), and some of the ethical issues that they present. They then move on to talk about semi-automated systems, such as drones, where the human can often prove the ‘weak link’ in the chain.
