War at Warp Speed: Emerging Technologies, Great-Power Tensions, and the Risks of Nuclear Escalation
October 20 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
October 20, 7 pm, PSU Sidore Series Lecture: War at Warp Speed: Emerging Technologies, Great-Power Tensions, and the Risks of Nuclear Escalation with Michael Klare.
The emergence of new technologies – A.I., cyber, robotics, and so on – will dramatically alter the future conduct of warfare, speeding up the pace of combat and increasing the risks of rapid escalation from minor incident to full-blown combat. At the same time, growing tensions between China, Russia, and the United States are increasing the potential for crises and conflicts to erupt. This talk will examine both the risks of escalation and what can be done to reduce the potential for World War III.
Michael Klare, is the Professor of Peace & World Security Studies Emeritus at Hampshire College and a Senior Visiting Fellow at the Arms Control Association in Washington, D.C.
