THIS IS A THREE-PART SERIES
Subrata Ghoshroy: January 21: Defense R&D, Science, Profits, and Boondoggles. Here is the VIDEO of the program.
The US federal government spends billions of dollars each year on highly questionable warfare and unncessary anti-missle systems that don't work. In addition, there is a plan to spend an additional $1 trillion on upgrading and developing the US nuclear arsenal. Join us for a three part series as we explore the politics of defense spending, the hype and reality of artificial intelligence and the science, profits and waste of US defense R&D.
