Peter Singer is the author of Wired for War, and he gave a presentation about the robotics revolution in warfare to the Lowy Institute on Wednesday via satellite. In my interview with Peter this morning, we started by discussing whether the rapid move toward the use of military robots really is a revolution, and then moved into a discussion about robotics in the Australia's Defence White PaperĀ (Peter isn't impressed).

PS. There are some cool robot videos on Peter's website too.
