The use of A.I. in warfare is a given, as countries have already developed autonomous drones that can monitor borders and conduct airstrikes of their own volition.

These tactics are just one part of future warfare that will be increasingly driven by computer code and algorithms.

In our session on Future Casting, we look at examples in science fiction such as Blade Runner, Killer Bots, and HBO’s Westworld.
