Abstract

Even a cursory review of the contemporary governance architecture regarding military technological innovation generally reveals a disturbing lack of consensus regarding the necessity for governance and methodologies to be utilized to achieve it. Innovations, adaptations, and uses in the areas of nanotechnology, bio-science, information science, cognitive technologies - referred to generally as NBIC - and especially robotics, are being discovered at an unprecedented rate in a culture of technological uncertainty, which provides very little time and minimal governance in order to ask the question of not can we do this, but should we do this?
