Cutting edge technology has radically changed modern warfare and the modern soldier, perhaps exerting its greatest impact through the introduction of automated drones. In this live edition of CUNY TV’s “Science Goes to the Movies,” journalist Faith Salie and neuroscientist Heather Berlin lead an exploration of the technical, ethical, and psychological effects of drone warfare, as dramatically depicted in clips from films such as “Eye in the Sky.” Join a lively and engaging conversation sweeping across the battlefield and the big screen.
Science Goes to the Movies is made possible by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation and CUNY TV.
This program is supported by the Alfred P. Sloan Foundation as part of its Public Understanding of Science and Technology Initiative.
This program is presented in collaboration with The Museum of the Moving Image.
