How the Pentagon’s Skynet Would Automate War

Pentagon officials are worried that the US military is losing its edge compared to competitors like China, and are willing to explore almost anything to stay on top—including creating watered-down versions of the Terminator.

The Coming Revolution: Evolutionary Leap or Descent into Chaos?
