War and technology have always been intertwined. But our high-tech age is drastically changing the landscape and the rules of warfare.
What are the goals of today’s conflicts? And with robots, drones, hacking, etc, what would a full-scale war look like? What would set it off, and would we be ready to fight in such a war? During this lunch lecture we will address these questions with commodore professor Frans Osinga, who will discuss modern warfare and the importance of geopolitical, technological and ecological developments.
