GRP 119-I have a great guest on with me for this episode. Ephraim Mattos is a former U.S. Navy SEAL turned humanitarian aid worker. Mattos has an upcoming book releasing in October co-authored by Scott McEwen (the author of American Sniper) called “City of Death: Humanitarian Warriors in the battle for Mosul”.

Ephraim spent months in Iraq with the Free Burma Rangers providing medical care to Iraqi’s wounded during the battle to retake Mosul from ISIS. There is a viral video taken during the battle where Mattos and a former U.S. Marine step out from behind a tank to provide covering fire for David Eubank as he sprints under ISIS sniper fire to rescue a little girl. Eubank is a former American Special Forces officer who founded the Free Burma Rangers. Mattos was shot shortly after the rescue. We discussed this event and much more. Enjoy.

We’re back from a podcasting hiatus with a great episode. I spent my fourth of July morning talking with Army Colonel Scott Kelly. Colonel Kelly spent over 23 years in the military working in various roles as a commanding officer. We touched on several topics including special operations selection, leading men at the pinnacle of combat arms in special missions, family, and the large task of running an Army. Colonel Kelly is also the director of the Green Beret Project which does invaluable work with at risk youth. Please check them out. Enjoy.

GRP 115-ARMY OF NONE: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War

GRP 115-  Our guest for this week’s episode is Pentagon defense expert and former U.S. Army Ranger Paul Scharre. Paul’s new book, ARMY OF NONE: Autonomous Weapons and the Future of War is a necessary analysis of this new world. In the book, Scharre traces the emergence of this technology, drawing on incisive research and his personal experiences through four combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan to explore the moral and practical challenges of machine-decision making in today’s messy, modern wars.

 

We covered:

 

• The rise of fully autonomous weapons and the movement to ban them

• The legal and ethical issues surrounding autonomous weapons

• The role of artificial intelligence in military technology

• How fatal incidents of autonomous weapons gone wrong inform and refine operating procedures, doctrine, and software

• How do nations trust one another in an environment of autonomous weapons and cooperate to avoid harmful outcomes?

• When a robot kills, who stands trial?
