Military technology

Military technology , range of weapons, equipment, structures, and vehicles used specifically for the purpose of warfare. It includes the knowledge required to construct such technology , to employ it in combat, and to repair and replenish it. The technology of war may be divided into five categories. Offensive arms harm the enemy, while defensive weapons ward off offensive blows. Transportation technology moves soldiers and weaponry; communications coordinate the movements of armed forces; and sensors detect forces and guide weaponry. From the earliest times, a critical relationship has existed between military technology, the tactics of its employment, and the psychological factors that bind its users into units.

What will the spread of nuclear weapons do to the world? Horizontally, they have spread slowly across countries, and the pace is not likely to change much. Short-term candidates for the nuclear club are not very numerous. Counting India and Israel, membership grew to seven in the first 35 years of the nuclear age. A doubling of membership in this decade would be surprising. Since rapid changes in international conditions can be unsettling, the slowness of the spread of nuclear weapons is fortunate. Someday the world will be populated by ten or twelve or eighteen nuclear-weapon states hereafter referred to as nuclear states.

For other overviews of my work, see my CV and google scholar. Progress in artificial Intelligence AI is likely to be one of the most important developments in the coming century. There is a non-trivial chance that we will see, in two decades, developments that transform society, the economy, and international relations. These will pose radical opportunities and challenges. I seek to anticipate these and identify levers for avoiding the risks. In particular I think about how global politics will shape, and be shaped by, the evolution of AI.

Don't rely on these old notes in lieu of reading the literature, but they can jog your memory. As a grad student long ago, my peers and I collaborated to write and exchange summaries of political science research. I posted them to a wiki-style website. I cannot vouch for these notes' accuracy, nor can I even say who wrote them. If you have more recent summaries to add to this collection, send them my way I guess.

Van Evera: Offense, defense, and the causes of war

А потом раздался нечеловеческий крик. Это был протяжный вопль ужаса, издаваемый умирающим зверем. Сьюзан замерла возле вентиляционного люка. Крик оборвался столь же внезапно, как и раздался. Затем наступила тишина. Мгновение спустя, словно в дешевом фильме ужасов, свет в ванной начал медленно гаснуть.

Беккер увеличил скорость. Поравнявшись с задним бампером, он взял немного правее. Ему была видна задняя дверца: как это принято в Севилье, она оставалась открытой - экономичный способ кондиционирования. Все внимание Беккера сосредоточилось на открытой двери, и он забыл о жгучей боли в ногах. Задние колеса уже остались за спиной - огромные, доходящие ему до плеч скаты, вращающиеся все быстрее и быстрее. Беккер рванулся к двери, рука его опустилась мимо поручня, и он чуть не упал. Еще одно усилие.

Беги, Сьюзан. Открой дверцу. Спасайся. Она открыла глаза, словно надеясь увидеть его лицо, его лучистые зеленые глаза и задорную улыбку, и вновь перед ней всплыли буквы от А до Z. Шифр!. Сьюзан смотрела на эти буквы, и они расплывались перед ее слезящимися глазами.

Он подстраховался - передал копию ключа анонимной третьей стороне на тот случай… ну, если с ним что-нибудь случится. Это можно было предвидеть, - подумала Сьюзан.

О Боже, я вам так благодарна. Беккер растерялся. Очевидно, он ошибался. Девушка обвила его руками. - Это лето было такое ужасное, - говорила она, чуть не плача.

 Заметано.
