This seminar will provide a fundamental understanding of how artificial intelligence and cyber tools will affect the global battlefield in the years to come.  Beginning by exploring the current status of artificial intelligence technology, the published cyber capabilities of international actors, and the current United States cyber strategy. Then a look at the projected abilities of artificial intelligence and its implications for warfare, based on released statements by both the private sector and government actors. This seminar is about the upcoming role of artificial intelligence as it applies to cyber strategy and national defense.

Cyber Intelligence and Statecraft

Crisis at the speed of Code: This seminar examines the most salient national security crises and dilemmas intersecting with the grey areas of cybersecurity. It will consider the nexus to private sector engagement and the need for refinement of current policies, laws, and norms to better reflect creative activities of state and non-state actors in the cyber domain, particularly concerning espionage, the commission of financial crime, and the role of non-state actors, surrogates, or cyber mercenaries.
