On Thursday, October 13th, the Strauss Center is hosting Dr. Nicholas Weaver, founder of Skerry Technologies, as he discusses a significant new weapon on the battlefield: the small autonomous drone. Small drones have already changed the landscape of war across armed conflicts in the past decade, from Syria, to Mexico, to Ukraine. The future of drone usage on the battlefield is constantly evolving. The cost of drones has dropped and problems have emerged between what the human controllers want the drone to do, and what the drone is actually programmed to do. Rather than banning drones entirely, Dr. Weaver offers suggestions for how to prepare for drone-led conflicts in the future.

This event is free and open to the public. No RSVP required. Lunch will be served. For more information on this event, contact Susan Crane at
