Tracking the Global Spread of Advanced Technologies
Livermores Center for Global Security Research (CGSR) has been sponsoring
workshops involving some of the brightest minds in science and technology,
government, and academia. The main focus of recent workshops was the rapid
global spread of new technologies and their potential effect on national
security. Last year, the CGSR brought together experts to discuss technology-driven
threats to the U.S. and its allies in the 2015 to 2020 timeframe. Participants
studied how the Internet, migration, multinational corporations, and global
research collaborations are all helping to provide every nation as well
as small extremist groups access to technical knowledge. The series of
workshops, entitled After Globalization: Future Security in a Technology-Rich
World, resulted in a ranking of long-range threats to the U.S. An
ongoing CGSR project titled Whither Deterrence? is examining
the future of deterrence in response to the new threat scenarios. Other
workshops and studies carry on the CGSR tradition of focusing on the interplay
between policy and technology.
