John Yoo: War with the Machines

The way we wage war is changing. There are various national security challenges in our modern world, such as international terrorism and the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. The advent of new technologies such as drones, autonomous robots and cyber weapons are quickly developing in response to these threats. What are the consequences of using these new technologies? Are they an effective means of solving complex security problems?

John Yoo is a professor at Berkeley Law School. Previously, Yoo served as deputy assistant attorney general under the George W. Bush administration. Join us as he discusses both the future of war and how technology can make it less destructive.
