Warring Futures: A Future Tense Event
How Biotech and Robotics are Transforming Today's Military -- and How That Will Change the Rest of Us
New America Foundation

12:30 Lunch Keynote: "Bugs, Bits and Engineering Bioforms: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly" (Video broadcast on CSPAN)
George Poste, Chief Scientist, Complex Adaptive Systems Initiative, Arizona State University

Or, watch the CSPAN version at:

New technologies are changing warfare as profoundly as did gunpowder. How are everything from flying robots as small as birds to “peak warrior performance” biology altering the nature of the military as an institution, as well as the ethics and strategy of combat? How will the adoption of emerging technologies by our forces or others affect our understanding of asymmetrical conflict?

New technologies are always embraced wherever there is the greatest competition for advantage, but quickly move out to the rest of us not engaged in sport or warfare. At this May 24 Future Tense event -- sponsored jointly by Arizona State University, New America Foudnation, and Slate magazine -- a wide range of experts from the military, private sector and academia explored how these technologies will inevitably migrate to consumer markets and the broader culture, and what their impact will be.

"For every thousand hacking at the leaves of evil, there is one striking at the root."
David Thoreau (1817-1862)
