The robotics and artificial intelligence field has witnessed some genuinely astounding progress in recent years. This progress goes beyond automated factories or self-driving cars; it’s also making significant ripples in the military sphere. 

We’re on the brink of a new era in warfare where there are blurred lines between man and machine. An age of cyborg soldiers, if you will.

So what does this mean for the future of warfare? How will the rise of cyborg soldiers reshape the landscape of military operations? Will it render traditional war obsolete? Or does it simply mean transforming what we understand as conventional warfare? 

These are some of the questions we’ll try to answer.
