Read the event highlights


Technological advances have greatly benefited our world, but with these benefits have come considerable risks. Criminals, corporations, and even countries can use new and emerging technology against us. And our vulnerabilities are growing with advances in robotics, artificial intelligence, synthetic biology, nanotechnology, and quantum computing. Global strategist, futurist, and author Marc Goodman joins RAND researcher and cybercrime expert Lillian Ablon for a glimpse into the future of crime in an interconnected world and also shares the steps we can take to protect ourselves.
