內容簡介

比爾‧蓋茲2018年年度前5大推薦必看作品
五角大廈防衛專家和前任美軍遊騎兵Paul Scharre探討無人之戰,自主武器與戰爭的未來


若無人飛機的自主權和Google自動駕駛車一樣時會發生什麼事?當可鎖定目標式的獵殺武器被駭客入侵又會出現什麼危機?或許這一切聽來像科幻小說情節,但現今的新型武器早已不再需要透過人為控制。新興武器技術專家Paul Scharre結合深入研究和第一手經驗探討未來的新一代武器將如何改變戰爭。

當自主武器的出現,就不斷圍繞在禁止使用、法律規範和道德相關等議題。特別是將人工智慧運用在軍事武器中。創新的技術橫跨數十年,從二戰時期德軍發明會自動尋找噪音的雷神魚雷,到今日的導彈,再到自主式的網路武器、專門獵殺潛艇的自主航行無人艦艇和機械坦克部隊。透過與國防專家、倫理學家、心理學家和活動家的專訪,探討未來戰爭將走向將人類與機械認知結合的「半人馬戰士」挑戰。過去數十年人類取得巨大的科技進步,但也親眼目睹複雜自動化系統可能帶來的可怕災難,例如F-22戰鬥機首次飛越國際換日線時發生電腦系統崩潰的意外。

目前至少有30個國家已經擁有在人類監督下運作的防禦性自主武器,而其他國家的軍方也正在建造具有自主性的機器人武器。本書集結軍事歷史、全球政策和最先進的科技,探討人類必須接受科技使戰爭更加精準及人道,但仍不能缺少道德上的判別,當根本問題與生死相關時,絕對沒有任何事物可取代人心。

A Pentagon defense expert and former U.S. Army Ranger explores what it would mean to give machines authority over the ultimate decision of life or death.

What happens when a Predator drone has as much autonomy as a Google car? Or when a weapon that can hunt its own targets is hacked? Although it sounds like science fiction, the technology already exists to create weapons that can attack targets without human input. Paul Scharre, a leading expert in emerging weapons technologies, draws on deep research and firsthand experience to explore how these next-generation weapons are changing warfare.

Scharre’s far-ranging investigation examines the emergence of autonomous weapons, the movement to ban them, and the legal and ethical issues surrounding their use. He spotlights artificial intelligence in military technology, spanning decades of innovation from German noise-seeking Wren torpedoes in World War II―antecedents of today’s homing missiles―to autonomous cyber weapons, submarine-hunting robot ships, and robot tank armies. Through interviews with defense experts, ethicists, psychologists, and activists, Scharre surveys what challenges might face "centaur warfighters" on future battlefields, which will combine human and machine cognition. We’ve made tremendous technological progress in the past few decades, but we have also glimpsed the terrifying mishaps that can result from complex automated systems―such as when advanced F-22 fighter jets experienced a computer meltdown the first time they flew over the International Date Line.

At least thirty countries already have defensive autonomous weapons that operate under human supervision. Around the globe, militaries are racing to build robotic weapons with increasing autonomy. The ethical questions within this book grow more pressing each day. To what extent should such technologies be advanced? And if responsible democracies ban them, would that stop rogue regimes from taking advantage? At the forefront of a game-changing debate, Army of None engages military history, global policy, and cutting-edge science to argue that we must embrace technology where it can make war more precise and humane, but without surrendering human judgment. When the choice is life or death, there is no replacement for the human heart.
