LSE IDEAS public lecture and book launch.
Warrior Geeks: how 21st century technology is changing the way we fight and think about war
Professor Christopher Coker
Professor of International Relations at LSE.
In his latest book Christopher Coker explains how the latest technologies are transforming the face of war. We are folding men into a cybernetic system that will be able to read their thoughts as well as monitor their actions. On the battlefields of tomorrow men and machines will co-exist in an uneasy relationship. Are we in danger of losing touch with our humanity – the name we give not only to a species but the qualities it is deemed to embody? In revaluing technology are we devaluing our own humanity?
This event is free and open to all with no ticket required.
