From Agent Orange to Artificial Intelligence, Inside DARPA, the 'Pentagon's Brain'

at 10:00 AM

DARPA, or the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency was created during the depths of the Cold War to defend the United States against nuclear weapons. Today the agency's experiments with computer-brain interfaces and autonomous robots have given rise to fears of artificial intelligence run amok, and "Terminator"-like warfare. Drawing on extensive research and interviews with 71 individuals connected to the agency, Annie Jacobsen joins us to discuss her book "The Pentagon's Brain," which explores DARPA's clandestine past and newest technologies.
