Security 2040: The Promise and Perils of AI, 3D Printing, and Speed
In coming decades, emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and 3D printing will pose new risks to people, nations, and global security. At the same time, accelerating change will challenge policymakers' capacity to adapt. As part of RAND's Security 2040 initiative, multidisciplinary teams of experts are building on RAND's legacy of helping decisionmakers anticipate and respond to trends that will impact our security and well-being.
In this Events @ RAND podcast, these experts discuss some of the most crucial trends and how to harness their potential.
Security 2040 Overview
How Might Artificial Intelligence Affect the Risk of Nuclear War?
Additive Manufacturing in 2040: Powerful Enabler/Disruptive Threat
Speed and Security: Promises, Perils, and Paradoxes of Accelerating Everything
The Security 2040 initiative explores technologies and trends that are shaping the global security landscape. By focusing on lesser-known security risks, Security 2040 aims to help decisionmakers anticipate and respond to threats on the horizon.
The Security 2040 initiative explores how new trends and technologies could impact the future of global security. The goal: Alert policymakers to potential future risks and recommend solutions.
Advances in AI have provoked a new kind of arms race among nuclear powers. This technology could challenge the basic rules of nuclear deterrence and lead to catastrophic miscalculations.
Life is moving faster and faster. Just about everything—transportation, weapons, the flow of information—is accelerating. How will decisionmakers preserve our personal and national security in the face of hyperspeed?
