The goal of the event is to critically examine the following questions: How do disruptive and emerging technologies impact non-state actors? Does the proliferation of new technologies change the dynamics of asymmetric warfare?

The conference will provide a forum where members of the military and academic researchers can “bridge the gap” to develop strategies in response to the possibility of terrorist groups acquiring new technologies. It will conclude with two keynote speakers, Peter Singer and Emerson T. Brooking, authors of LikeWar – The Weaponization of Social Media.

There will be four panels with industry experts:

Drones and Autonomous Vehicles: Erik Lin-Greenberg, Sarah Kreps, Jim Walsh
