| Interessant interview met de schrijver van "Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century."
When my grandfather went to war in the Pacific, he went to a place
where there was such danger he might not ever come home again. You
compare that to the drone pilot experience. Not only what it's like to
kill, but the whole experience of going to war is getting up, getting
into their Toyota Corolla, going in to work, killing enemy combatants
from afar, getting in their car, and driving home. So 20 minutes after
being at war, they're back at home and talking to their kid about their
homework at the dinner table. So this whole meaning of the term "going
to war" that's held true for 5,000 years is changing.
Ook is het leger blij met de Video game fabrikanten want de gamers kunnen zo aan de slag als Predator 'piloot'.
Waar moet dat heen..
