Launch of Sundeep Waslekar’s A World Without War

Weapons are key to winning wars. The side with the larger, more technologically advanced arsenal often has a decided advantage. The next generation of wars will be fought with, and over, technology: particularly the ownership of the chips and codes that ensure competitive economic advantages. But the question is: can the same artificial intelligence that guides hypersonic missiles be re-deployed  for more peaceful objectives? Two writers look at the destructive power of modern weaponry and how they might be re-purposed for positive ends in a world of hyper-nationalistic chest thumping.
