New Tools for Science Policy

Future Conflict & Emerging Technologies

This New Tools seminar explores the rapidly evolving environment for conflict, examining how destabilizing geopolitical factors and fast-moving technologies are making familiar institutions and assumptions questionable, if not obsolete.

About the Seminar

December 09, 2016 8:30am—10:30am

Rapid advances in technology are making the world more complex, interconnected, and dangerous—while undermining the long-standing tools, institutions, and assumptions we have developed to manage conflict. From the digital frontier of cyber conflict to the use of autonomous lethal military robots, the arenas, actors, and objectives of modern conflict are changing in unpredictable ways. Political upheavals at home and abroad have only intensified the sense that we are entering uncharted territory.

Navigating this new geopolitical landscape requires understanding how emerging military and security technologies can affect strategy, warfare, and geopolitics. For our next New Tools for Science Policy seminar, join ASU Professor Braden Allenby and The Intercept national security reporter Sharon Weinberger as they discuss the shifting dynamics of modern conflict.
