    When I was a kid, I read a lot of sci-fi books. One of the most common themes was ?man vs. machine,? which often took the form of robots becoming self-aware and threatening humanity. This theme has also become a staple of Hollywood movies like The Terminator and The Matrix. Desp...

    I could not finish this book despite my interest in technology. As an engineer who is fascinated by artificial intelligence and machine learning, I was very eager to read this book and learn more from what experts are thinking and doing with AI. Though I did learn a few cool things, th...

    The content wasn't what I was expecting based on the title. I thought there would be more content on weapons of the future and how they would affect warfare. There was some of that, but it seemed like most of the book philosophized on the ethics/morality of autonomous weapons. I'm glad...

    A really great overview of autonomous weapons, AI in weaponry and all the issues concerned with it. What is really special about this book is that the author can clearly eplain this really complex debate, because what is autonomy? What is the problem with it? Should we ban it completel...

    Paul Scharre's Army of None is an essential book for anyone interested in the present and future of AI and Autonomous Weapons. Written with a clarity and sophistication that renders even the advanced jargon of Artificial Intelligence easy to grasp, it builds a foundation for a clear un...

    With this, Scharre shows that he is one of the best writers on technology and security today. Using his military and bureaucratic experience, he discusses the technological, legal and ethical challenges of autonomous weapons systems. There is no hype and he is even-handed in presenting...

    Very interesting take on AI and its us in future autonomous weapons. No this isn't the terminator yet, but this book shows how technology and innovation are bringing us closer to 1 program that could runaway or turn against it's makers. Weapons flying around in the sky looking for ...

    A very good exploration of autonomous weapons, AI, and the potential of future technology in war. Written in very simple language. Worth your time. ...

    The US military has paid millions of dollars to stay at the technological cutting edge. Scharre walks the reader thru the various weapon platforms that are in development and the arguments for and against autonomy. He interviewed activists, ethicists, psychologists, inventors, programe...

    Paul Scharre?s book is a balanced, evenhanded presentation of the arguments and issues involved in the development, restriction, or ban of fully autonomous weapons (and weapons of lesser degrees of autonomy). It is the perfect primer for reasonable discussion of this literally lethal...

    A fairly thorough overview of autonomous weapons, including a definition of what that actually means, a surprisingly difficult question. By some definitions an 'autonomous weapon' is any weapon that finds its own target - something that dates to the acoustic torpedoes of WWII. Since th...

    A thought-provoking book about autonomous weaponry and the modern era, with insights on every aspect of autonomy from rhoombas to terminators. With artificial intelligence making headlines everyday as computers are mastering skills thought to lie beyond their capabilities, like beating...

    This was a stellar book! Well researched, and yet well written so it is accessible and enjoyable for all. If you are curious about the history of autonomy, where we are now, and what the future may hold, this is the book for you. Autonomous weapons have really been around much longer t...

    A really great overview of autonomous weapons, AI in weaponry and all the issues concerned with it. What is really special about this book is that the author can clearly eplain this really complex debate, because what is autonomy? What is the problem with it? Should we ban it completel...

    Paul Scharre's Army of None is an essential book for anyone interested in the present and future of AI and Autonomous Weapons. Written with a clarity and sophistication that renders even the advanced jargon of Artificial Intelligence easy to grasp, it builds a foundation for a clear un...

    With this, Scharre shows that he is one of the best writers on technology and security today. Using his military and bureaucratic experience, he discusses the technological, legal and ethical challenges of autonomous weapons systems. There is no hype and he is even-handed in presenting...

    Very interesting take on AI and its us in future autonomous weapons. No this isn't the terminator yet, but this book shows how technology and innovation are bringing us closer to 1 program that could runaway or turn against it's makers. Weapons flying around in the sky looking for ...

    Link to a review of Paul Scharre's "Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War" (WW Norton, 2018), reviewed by Professor Stephanie Carvin (Carleton University, Ottawa), published on the Lawfare: National Security and Law website, April 26, 2018, and posted to Goodreads by L...

    Insightful. It was more philoshopical than technical. It gives the reader lots to think about, regarding how technology impacts our lives. I'm not anti-techhnology, I need to remember that turning" it "off is always a personal option but not global option. Things can get out of hand fa...

    Worth it Great start to understanding the complexity of the burgeoning autonomous world and knowing the difference in each level of autonomy. The author?s personal experience, coupled with this technology, really brings to the forefront numerous topics of discussion. Especially if...

    I liked only first few pages that discussed incidents of human intelligence over a machine. Like the Iraq war scene and Russian missile crisis. But after that I couldn't sustain my interest. It's abstract and mostly hypothesis of future of AI. Unfortunately I didn't like the book. ...

    Excellent though piece on the direction we are going with artificial intelligence (AI) and its application in warfare. Technological capabilities are expanding and growing so rapidly that we are already "there" before we have critically thought through where humanity and our souls are ...

    A really great overview of autonomous weapons, AI in weaponry and all the issues concerned with it. What is really special about this book is that the author can clearly eplain this really complex debate, because what is autonomy? What is the problem with it? Should we ban it completel...

    Paul Scharre's Army of None is an essential book for anyone interested in the present and future of AI and Autonomous Weapons. Written with a clarity and sophistication that renders even the advanced jargon of Artificial Intelligence easy to grasp, it builds a foundation for a clear un...

    With this, Scharre shows that he is one of the best writers on technology and security today. Using his military and bureaucratic experience, he discusses the technological, legal and ethical challenges of autonomous weapons systems. There is no hype and he is even-handed in presenting...

    Very interesting take on AI and its us in future autonomous weapons. No this isn't the terminator yet, but this book shows how technology and innovation are bringing us closer to 1 program that could runaway or turn against it's makers. Weapons flying around in the sky looking for ...

    Link to a review of Paul Scharre's "Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War" (WW Norton, 2018), reviewed by Professor Stephanie Carvin (Carleton University, Ottawa), published on the Lawfare: National Security and Law website, April 26, 2018, and posted to Goodreads by L...

    Insightful. It was more philoshopical than technical. It gives the reader lots to think about, regarding how technology impacts our lives. I'm not anti-techhnology, I need to remember that turning" it "off is always a personal option but not global option. Things can get out of hand fa...

    Worth it Great start to understanding the complexity of the burgeoning autonomous world and knowing the difference in each level of autonomy. The author?s personal experience, coupled with this technology, really brings to the forefront numerous topics of discussion. Especially if...

    I liked only first few pages that discussed incidents of human intelligence over a machine. Like the Iraq war scene and Russian missile crisis. But after that I couldn't sustain my interest. It's abstract and mostly hypothesis of future of AI. Unfortunately I didn't like the book. ...

    The book brilliantly works in the effect of automation on the operation of complex systems, normal accidents and high reliability organisation. Additionally interesting is the the historical overview and the future scope of the laws governing weapons. ...

    This was a stellar book! Well researched, and yet well written so it is accessible and enjoyable for all. If you are curious about the history of autonomy, where we are now, and what the future may hold, this is the book for you. Autonomous weapons have really been around much longer t...

    The book is a comprehensive review of present and past developments and progress towards autonomous weapons. It covers a broad spectrum of technological, military and ethical aspects of an A.I. led warfare. The ubiquitous presence of A.I. is undeniable, however, the end question is wh...

    Only negative comment: I think the content could have been organized a little better. I sometimes felt what I was currently reading could have fit better in an earlier chapter, etc. That?s it. Otherwise, an outstanding analysis of the coming of AI and its potential impacts on war....

    The military has always been in the forefront of technology development. Darpa has enabled the internet and GPS, two technologies we cannot live without. This book raises the question on how far autonomy go. Based on current state of weapon technology, it also draws samples from oth...

    Excellent though piece on the direction we are going with artificial intelligence (AI) and its application in warfare. Technological capabilities are expanding and growing so rapidly that we are already "there" before we have critically thought through where humanity and our souls are ...

    A really great overview of autonomous weapons, AI in weaponry and all the issues concerned with it. What is really special about this book is that the author can clearly eplain this really complex debate, because what is autonomy? What is the problem with it? Should we ban it completel...

    Paul Scharre's Army of None is an essential book for anyone interested in the present and future of AI and Autonomous Weapons. Written with a clarity and sophistication that renders even the advanced jargon of Artificial Intelligence easy to grasp, it builds a foundation for a clear un...

    With this, Scharre shows that he is one of the best writers on technology and security today. Using his military and bureaucratic experience, he discusses the technological, legal and ethical challenges of autonomous weapons systems. There is no hype and he is even-handed in presenting...

    Very interesting take on AI and its us in future autonomous weapons. No this isn't the terminator yet, but this book shows how technology and innovation are bringing us closer to 1 program that could runaway or turn against it's makers. Weapons flying around in the sky looking for ...

    Link to a review of Paul Scharre's "Army of None: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War" (WW Norton, 2018), reviewed by Professor Stephanie Carvin (Carleton University, Ottawa), published on the Lawfare: National Security and Law website, April 26, 2018, and posted to Goodreads by L...

    Insightful. It was more philoshopical than technical. It gives the reader lots to think about, regarding how technology impacts our lives. I'm not anti-techhnology, I need to remember that turning" it "off is always a personal option but not global option. Things can get out of hand fa...

    Worth it Great start to understanding the complexity of the burgeoning autonomous world and knowing the difference in each level of autonomy. The author?s personal experience, coupled with this technology, really brings to the forefront numerous topics of discussion. Especially if...

    When I was a kid, I read a lot of sci-fi books. One of the most common themes was ?man vs. machine,? which often took the form of robots becoming self-aware and threatening humanity. This theme has also become a staple of Hollywood movies like The Terminator and The Matrix. Desp...

    I could not finish this book despite my interest in technology. As an engineer who is fascinated by artificial intelligence and machine learning, I was very eager to read this book and learn more from what experts are thinking and doing with AI. Though I did learn a few cool things, th...

    "It can't be bargained with. It can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear! And it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead!" ---Terminator--- Does it concern you that in the near future we'll all be dependent upon driverless cars to get arou...

    The content wasn't what I was expecting based on the title. I thought there would be more content on weapons of the future and how they would affect warfare. There was some of that, but it seemed like most of the book philosophized on the ethics/morality of autonomous weapons. I'm glad...

    Good book that explores the future of autonomous weapons. These weapons range from loitering munitions to drones to nuclear command and control systems (think war games). Further, the book explores not only advancements in technology, but the ethics and morality of developing these typ...

    Paul Scharre?s book is a balanced, evenhanded presentation of the arguments and issues involved in the development, restriction, or ban of fully autonomous weapons (and weapons of lesser degrees of autonomy). It is the perfect primer for reasonable discussion of this literally lethal...
