War in the Age of Intelligent Machines

Where: Scotiabank Theatre, University of King’s College, Halifax, NS

Don’t miss Noel Sharkey, renowned professor of robotics and popular BBC commentator, and Duncan MacIntosh, Professor of Philosophy at Dalhousie University, as they debate the role of autonomous weapons and killer machines. What’s this future going to look like? What’s that mean for us? To what degree should we be concerned?
