Peter Warren Singer

“People don’t have to ‘go to war’ in the old way; they are fighting, but then go home at the end of the day. The most dangerous point of their day is not the act of shooting bu the drive to and from work. That’s a breakpoint in history, a singularity, so to speak, and we’re already there.”

As director of the 21st Century Defense Initiative at the Brookings Institution, Peter Warren Singer focuses on the future of warfare, addressing the role played by new actors and technologies. He has written extensively about this question, with publications that include Wired for War: The Robotics Revolution and Conflict in the 21st Century.
