Hosted and Cosponsored by the National Liberty Museum


 Michael HorowitzThe US technological lead has been key to maintaining American military superiority but that lead may not be assured forever. Moreover, the defense budget items most vulnerable to sequestration are experimental technologies that we need to maintain the US technological lead.  In this talk, Michael Horowitz will explore military robotics and the future of war.  An Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Pennsylvania and a Senior Fellow of FPRI, Horowitz just returned to Philadelphia after spending a year as a Council on Foreign Relations Fellow at the Pentagon, where, among other things, he assessed “game-changing technologies.” He is author of the prizewinning book The Diffusion of Military Power: Causes and Consequences for International Politics (Princeton University Press, 2010).
