Cybersecurity and Cyberwar - P. W. Singer; Allan Friedman
Call Number: Online eBook
ISBN: 0199918090
Publication Date: 2014-01-03
Dependence on computers has had a transformative effect on human society. Cybernetics is now woven into the core functions of virtually every basic institution, including our oldest ones. War is one such institution, and the digital revolution's impact on it has been profound. The Americanmilitary, which has no peer, is almost completely reliant on high-tech computer systems. Given the Internet's potential for full-spectrum surveillance and information disruption, the marshaling of computer networks represents the next stage of cyberwar. Indeed, it is upon us already. The recent Stuxnet episode, in which Israel fed a malignant computer virus into Iran's nuclearfacilities, is one such example. Penetration into US government computer systems by Chinese hackers-presumably sponsored by the Chinese government-is another. Together, they point to a new era in the evolution of human conflict. In Cybersecurity and Cyberwar: What Everyone Needs to Know, noted experts Peter W. Singer and Allan Friedman lay out how the revolution in military cybernetics occurred and explain where it is headed. They begin with an explanation of what cyberspace is before moving on to discussions of how it canbe exploited and why it is so hard to defend. Throughout, they discuss the latest developments in military and security technology. Singer and Friedman close with a discussion of how people and governments can protect themselves. In sum, Cybersecurity and Cyberwar is the definitive account on thesubject for the educated layman who wants to know more about the nature of war, conflict, and security in the twenty first century.

The History of Computers - Video Education Australasia.
Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2013
This program traces the development of the electronic computer, from the valve-based devices of the mid-20th century to the invention of silicon-based technology and through to the manufacture of the first personal computers. The constant phenomenal growth in computing power and speed and the resulting reduction in costs are central themes. The video ends by examining what the future might hold in relation to computing technologies.

Man-Machine - Open University
Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2013
Humanoid servants and bionic superpeople have long been a part of the science fiction landscape, but innovations in the field of robotics are now making futuristic ideas a reality, as this program shows. Host James May meets a formerly blind woman who can now see thanks to light-sensitive retinal implants, and learns that people with disabilities may soon gain full mobility by wearing a mechanical exoskeleton. May also investigates the possibilities of lifelogging, finds one of the world’s most advanced robots not at MIT or Caltech but at Disneyland, and comes face-to-face with an android so lifelike that it is nearly indistinguishable from a human being.

Rise of the Machines : Will Civilian Drones Reshape American Life? - ABC International.
Call Number: Streaming Video
Publication Date: 2013
As America's military involvement in Iraq and Afghanistan winds down, many drones are coming home for use in border protection and municipal law enforcement. But domestic drone deployment is proliferating in other ways, too-in fact, anyone with a few hundred dollars can buy a sophisticated, unmanned aerial vehicle over the counter. Some operators are defying the law and flying their drones for commercial purposes-be they journalists following a story, real estate agents selling a house, or paparazzi chasing celebrities. This program examines the issue and explains how a congressional order could lead to tens of thousands of drones taking off legally into an already crowded sky, competing for space with domestic aviation. It's a regulator's nightmare-but some of its staunchest opponents have raised the possibility of an even greater danger: terrorist drones.
