Future Left Podcast Ep. 39: Replacing Soldiers With Robots?

Normally we love a good story about robots taking people's jobs, but this one isn't so heartwarming. Should we automate the war? What are the implications of deploying robots instead of soldiers? We also talk about MIT's 'Moral Machine,' and how to program ethical decision making into robots.
