  • Case Western Reserve University conference examines international law and ethics issues arising from emerging military technologies | think:blog
    Law School Should there be international agreement What would the rules be And what s realistic What can actually be enforced Unlike drones which are controlled weapons autonomous robots can be programmed to make instant decisions in a precise military operation Some think that it may be possible to program robots to act morally Mehlman said Genomic science Mehlman explains raises both wide ranging and personal questions Should everyone doing military service undergo genomic testing for the purpose of identifying those who are either more or less likely to experience post traumatic stress disorder And how will the bank of genomic data that is collected then be used A cyber warfare attack could infiltrate or disable a computer system or a power grid or bank accounts It raises concerns about disproportionate retaliation Non lethal weaponry seems like a more humane type of warfare a way to disable an enemy without killing Might that tactic actually remove ethical barriers from launching an attack The conference is made possible by a grant of the Wolf Family Foundation and support from Case Western Reserve s Inamori International Center for Ethics and Excellence Organizers of the conference are the Consortium on Emerging Military Technologies Military Operations and National Security CETMONS directed by Mehlman and the Frederick K Cox International Law Center directed by Case Western Reserve School of Law Interim Dean Michael Scharf Articles by the speakers will be published in a special double issue of the Case Western Reserve Journal of International Law The conference agenda and link to a webcast are available at http law case edu Lectures aspx lec id 372 print e mail feeds connect Get in touch with Case Western Reserve University s media relations team Contact information photos news releases and more are available on our site Posted

  • CWRU astronomers win time on Hubble to study galaxy formation | think:blog
    stars and gas out of M101 leading to the formation of new stars But there s a problem Mihos said From ground based telescopes what we see is light from millions of stars all blended together Based on that it s hard to say unequivocally what happened at what time We need to see the individual stars to work out the details and really understand what s going on So Mihos Harding CWRU astronomy graduate student Aaron Watkins and Youngstown State University s Patrick Durrell and John Feldmeier associate professors of physics and astronomy applied for time on Hubble to peer closer Being above the atmosphere and possessing more powerful optics the multi billion dollar telescope will enable them to see nearly 10 000 individual faint stars The colors and brightness of these individual stars from very old red stars to young and bright blue stars indicate not only age but also chemical makeup These details will help the researchers determine whether new stars have always been forming in the galaxy s outskirts or whether a recent interaction with a companion galaxy triggered transient changes The team will also try to determine if M101 which is about 25 million light years away has a halo of faint stars like that in the Milky Way Astronomers believe that the halos of spiral galaxies are built through an ongoing process of accretion As a spiral galaxy grows with time smaller galaxies fall in and are torn apart by its gravity leaving their stars orbiting in an extended halo But some scientists have suggested M101 has no halo which if true would throw a wrench in the current understanding of galaxy formation If it really has no halo then it s hard to see how it fits in our standard picture of galaxy
