Event Description

How will we adapt to the changing nature of work? Is the prospect of cyberwar sparking the next arms race? How can the world's rising nations hope to match Silicon Valley in creating their own innovation hotspots?

From robotics to cybersecurity to the coming impact of digital technology on money and markets, the next 10 years will be full of advances and stumbling blocks that will affect our economic future. As the former senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Alec Ross has seen what the future holds and is able to boil down these complex and intimidating topics into clear, plainspoken language. 

Alec Ross is visiting distinguished fellow at Johns Hopkins University and the author of The Industries of the Future. He has been named one of the Top 100 Global Thinkers by Foreign Policy magazine and he received the U.S. Department of State Distinguished Honor Award.

Speaker: Alec Ross

Privacy, Surveillance, & the Terrorist Trap, with Tom Parker

How can investigators utilize new technology like facial recognition software while respecting the rights of suspects and the general public? What are the consequences of government overreaction to terrorist threats? Tom Parker, author of "Avoiding the Terrorist Trap," discusses privacy, surveillance, and more in the context of counterterrorism.

A Parting of Values: America First versus Transactionalism

"The existing divide in American foreign policy discourse has been the extent to which the U.S. must actively propagate and spread its values, or defend them or promote them even when there is no interest at stake," writes Senior Fellow Nikolas Gvosdev. How does American civil society demand consideration of moral and ethical concerns in the decisions both to go to war and how the war will be prosecuted?

Suleimani Is Dead, but Diplomacy Shouldn’t Be

Carnegie Council fellow and Pacific Delegate Philip Caruso advocates for the value of diplomacy in the aftermath of the U.S. killing Iran's general Qassem Suleimani. "Iran cannot win a war against the United States, nor can the United States afford to fight one," he argues.
