About the Show
Robot Warriors examines the science, the technology and the impact that robotic warfare has on our society today. Once the domain of science fiction, with the US military’s Predator and Reaper UAV drones and Israel’s G-Nius armed patrol vehicles and Protector naval boat, ‘killer robots’ have become reality and are being developed at an explosive pace. While advances in robotics have the potential to greatly enhance military strength while reducing the number of combat casualties, the artificial intelligence required is the cause of much concern and research into the broader implications of this new technology. This fascinating investigation identifies the armies at the cutting edge of war robotics in the race to develop ever more advanced robotic infantry and other valuable robotic ground force assets. Robot Warriors tackles the subject at the very core of this technological revolution - how will it transform the world’s military, a soldier’s role and a nation’s power in the 21st century?
