Chameleo: A Strange but True Story of Invisible Spies, by Robert Guffey

By Robert Guffey

A spell binding mixture of Charles Bukowski, Hunter S. Thompson, and Philip ok. Dick, Chameleo is a real account of what occurred in a seedy Southern California city whilst an enthusiastic and unrepentant heroin addict named Dion Fuller sheltered a U.S. Marine who’d stolen evening imaginative and prescient goggles and maybe a number of best mystery records from a close-by army base.

Dion discovered himself arrested (under the ostensible auspices of The Patriot Act) for conspiring with foreign terrorists to smuggle most sensible mystery army apparatus out of Camp Pendleton. the truth that Dion had totally not anything to do with foreign terrorists, smuggling, most sensible mystery army apparatus, or Camp Pendleton didn’t appear to hassle the army. He used to be published from penal complex after a six-day-long Abu-Ghraib-style interrogation. therefore, he believed himself below excessive govt scrutiny — and, he suspected, the topic of surprising experimentation concerning “cloaking”— electro-optical camouflage so severe it renders observers virtually invisible from a distance of a few meters — via the dept of fatherland defense. Hallucination? probably — other than Robert Guffey, an English instructor and Dion’s pal, tracked down and interviewed one of many scientists at the back of the undertaking codenamed “Chameleo,” experimental expertise which seems to be to were stolen through the U.S. division of safeguard and deployed on American soil. extra stunning nonetheless, Guffey chanced on that the DoD has been experimenting with its most recent applied sciences on a few American citizens.

A condensed model of this tale was once the canopy characteristic of Fortean instances journal (September 2013).

Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the by P. W. Singer

By P. W. Singer

A army specialist finds how technological know-how fiction is speedy turning into fact at the battlefield, altering not only how wars are fought, but additionally the politics, economics, legislation, and ethics that encompass battle itself

P. W. Singer’s past books foretold the increase of non-public army contractors and the appearance of kid soldiers— predictions that proved all too actual. Now, he explores the best revolution in army affairs because the atom bomb—the creation of robot warfare.

We are only commencing to see a big shift in army expertise that threatens to make the stuff of I,Robot and the Terminator all too actual. greater than seven- thousand robot platforms at the moment are in Iraq. Pilots in Nevada are remotely killing terrorists in Afghanistan. Scientists are debating simply how smart—and how lethal—to make their present robot prototypes. and plenty of of the main popular technological know-how fiction authors are secretly consulting for the Pentagon at the subsequent generation.

Blending historical facts with interviews from the sector, Singer vividly exhibits that as those applied sciences multiply, they are going to have profound results at the entrance traces in addition to at the politics again domestic. relocating people off the battlefield makes wars more straightforward to begin, yet extra complicated to struggle. changing males with machines might avoid wasting lives, yet will decrease the morale and mental obstacles to killing. The “warrior ethos,” which has lengthy outlined soldiers’ identification, will erode, as will the legislation of battle that experience ruled army clash for generations.

Paradoxically, those new applied sciences also will carry struggle to our doorstep. As different countries or even terrorist agencies begin to construct or purchase their very own robot guns, the robotic revolution might undermine America’s army preeminence. whereas his research is unnerving, there’s an impossible to resist gee-whiz caliber to the recommendations Singer uncovers. Wired for War travels from Iraq to work out those robots in strive against to the latter-day “skunk works” in America’s suburbia, the place tomorrow’s applied sciences of conflict are quietly being designed. In Singer’s arms, the way forward for warfare is as attention-grabbing because it is horrifying.

Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless by Martin Ford

By Martin Ford

What are the roles of the longer term? what number will there be? And who can have them? we'd imagine—and hope—that today's business revolution will spread just like the final: while a few jobs are eradicated, extra should be created to house the hot recommendations of a brand new period. In upward push of the Robots, Silicon Valley entrepreneur Martin Ford argues that this is often totally now not the case. As expertise keeps to speed up and machines start caring for themselves, fewer humans should be important. man made intelligence is already good on its method to making “good jobs" out of date: many paralegals, reporters, workplace employees, or even desktop programmers are poised to get replaced via robots and clever software program. As development maintains, blue and white collar jobs alike will evaporate, squeezing operating- and middle-class households ever extra. whilst, families are below attack from exploding bills, particularly from the 2 significant industries—education and healthiness care—that, to this point, haven't been remodeled via info know-how. the outcome may possibly good be titanic unemployment and inequality in addition to the implosion of the shopper financial system itself.
In upward push of the Robots, Ford info what computer intelligence and robotics can accomplish, and implores employers, students, and coverage makers alike to stand the consequences. The previous options to technological disruption, particularly extra education and schooling, aren't going to paintings, and we needs to come to a decision, now, even if the long run will see broad-based prosperity or catastrophic degrees of inequality and monetary lack of confidence. upward push of the Robots is key studying for a person who desires to comprehend what accelerating expertise ability for his or her personal fiscal prospects—not to say these in their children—as good as for society as a complete.
