Reviews

"[E]ngagingly detailed...Scharre offers an authoritative and sobering perspective on the automated battlefields that will very soon come to characterize military conflict." -- Science
"A tour de force of the future of war technology. A former U.S. Army Ranger turned defense analyst, Paul Scharre has been there and back. He skillfully uses that background to blend personal experience and thoughtful analysis into a highly readable journey through the world of robots on the battlefield and beyond." -- P.W. Singer, author of Wired for War and Ghost Fleet
"The era of autonomous weapons is upon us. In Army of None, Scharre combines his experience as a warrior and his insight as a policy researcher to paint a comprehensive picture of exactly what such an era will look like. He masterfully weaves together threads tying future weapon systems, artificial intelligence, and policy imperatives to deliver a book that is simply a must-read for anyone interested in military technology and its broader implications." -- Amir Husain, founder and CEO of SparkCognition, and author of The Sentient Machine
"Technology democratizes. What was once the exclusive purview of nation-states quickly becomes accessible by everyone. Army of None serves as a smart primer to what's to come in warfare, but also what we're going to have to contend with in our daily lives soon after." -- Bruce Schneier, author of Data and Goliath: The Hidden Battles to Collect Your Data and Control Your World
"Be very, very afraid. As this extraordinary book reveals, we are fast sailing into an era in which big life-and-death decisions in war will be made not by men and women, but by artificial intelligence. Are we prepared for the most fundamental shift in warfare in history? This illuminating book will dominate the discussion and analysis of this problem-and its execution in the field-for decades to come." -- Admiral James Stavridis, former Supreme Allied Commander at NATO and author of Sea Power: The History and Politics of the World's Oceans
"A clear, well-written, and richly documented discussion of an issue that deserves deep and careful study." -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
"[D]etailed, nuanced, open-minded look at an incredibly complex and technical subject...Army of None will spark important discussions as it empowers reader with knowledge about a subject with enormous implications." -- Booklist
