Great Decisions 1

Defense Technology

By Peter Singer

From robotic planes to cyberweapons to 3D printing and human enhancement, new “game-changing” technologies are moving from science fiction to battlefield reality – all during an age of fiscal austerity. But in wrestling with the new, we can actually learn a great deal from the past. Our forebears went through similar challenges with such once fanciful but now normal concepts as airplanes, submarines, and tanks. What are the “killer applications” of the 21st century battlefield, and in turn, what are the issues that the U.S. must navigate in adapting to them?

Great Decisions is America’s largest discussion program on world affairs. The program model involves reading the Great Decisions Briefing Book (not required) and meeting in a Discussion Group to discuss the most critical global issues facing America today. The program provides background information and policy options for eight critical issues facing America and serves as the focal text for discussion groups across the country.
