IPC APEX EXPO keynote attendees will discover how this prolific inventor creates with his own unique palette of mathematics and machines and hear him describe his unique perspective on life, careers and inventing for the future.

 

On Wednesday, March 16, 2016, Peter Singer, strategist and senior fellow at the New America Foundation, will reveal how science fiction is fast becoming a reality on the battlefield, changing not just how wars are fought, but also the politics, economics, laws and ethics that surround war itself during his presentation, “Inside the Rise of the Warbots.”

 

Singer is considered one of the world’s leading experts on changes in 21st-century warfare and has consulted for the U.S. military, Defense Intelligence Agency and the FBI. Blending historic evidence with interviews from the field, Singer will enthrall keynote attendees with examples of robotic weapons, and how the robotic revolution will change the laws of war that have governed military conflict for generations.
