Kenneth Payne explores the evolutionary basis of strategic behaviour, and assesses the impact of non-biological intelligence on the future of warfare. From chimpanzees to computers, via a dose of Clausewitz: hopefully something for everyone.
Dr Kenneth Payne is a Senior Lecturer in the School of Security Studies at King's College London. This talk covers some of the research for his forthcoming book, of the same title. His earlier books considered the psychology of decision-making in the Vietnam War, and the connections between liberal warfare and human evolution.
