Description

War Virtually is the story of how scientists, programmers, and engineers are developing data-driven technologies for fighting virtual wars. It gives a lucid, gripping account of what lies behind the autonomous weapons, robotic systems, predictive modeling software, surveillance programs, and psyops techniques that are transforming military conflict. The book also lays bare the processes by which the Pentagon and US intelligence agencies have joined forces with Silicon Valley, raising an alarming prospect: that someday, Big Tech might merge with Big Defense. "War Virtually" takes an unflinching look at a future where new military technologies threaten democratic governance and human survival.
