Following up on his talk last year, Professor Lindsay will address three of the more important and controversial aspects of war: Is terrorism ever morally justified? Are “enhanced” interrogation techniques (i.e., torture) ever permissible to extract vital information from enemy combatants? How does artificial intelligence, in particular robotic weaponry, complicate the ethics of war?
