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?

GRP 112-Silence and Light: The story of a special operations rock band

 

We have two great guest on for this week’s podcast. They are both veterans of the special operations community and members of a band called Silence and Light.

 

J Bradford is a retired Army Special Missions operator who first saw combat in Mogadishu, Somalia during the Black Hawk Down incident as a young Ranger. Shortly before 9/11 he went onto try out and get selected to serve in the Army’s Special Missions unit where he served for over 10 years. Tyson is a retired Marine Raider Officer with multiple rotations into combat.

 

We talked about the band including the other members who were not on for this podcast. Jason Everman was a member of Sound Garden, and Nirvana before he joined the Army and became a Special Forces Green Beret. We touched on the stresses of combat among several other subjects. Enjoy.

GRP 100-War Dogs:The Story of a Special Missions Operator

GRP 100- For the 100th episode of the Global Recon Podcast we have an extremely special episode. On with us is retired Special Missions Operator Dave Nielsen. Dave served first with the 75th Ranger Regiment and then went into a Special Missions unit as an assaulter, dog handler, and sniper. His story was featured in the HBO documentary released on the 13th of this month called "War Dogs" executive produced by actor Channing Tatum.

This documentary shows the story of three dog handlers and their canine counterparts from the Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC). It's a raw, realistic view of what it's like going into combat with these warrior dogs and what its like post-military. Dave talked about his combat jump into Panama in 1989 as a young Ranger. He shared stories of his dog "Pepper" who was killed while rooting out an enemy from a sewer hole in Iraq on the banks of the Tigris River. They searched for her all night but had to leave once the sun was coming up as they were in enemy-held territory. We talked about the mindset required to pass selection for special operations, and the mindset required to surmount any obstacle in life. Enjoy. RIP Pepper.
