War and Algorithm

Research output: Book/ReportAnthology (editor)

Abstract

New military technologies are animated by fantasies of perfect knowledge, lawfulness, and vision that contrast sharply with the very real limits of human understanding, law, and vision. 'War and Algorithm' look at the increasing power of algorithms in these emerging forms of warfare from the perspectives of critical theory, philosophy, legal studies, and visual studies. Together, the contributions of this book provide a first step toward understanding - and resisting – our emerging world of war.
