U.S. Army Mad Scientist Weaponized Information Virtual Conference

July 21 @ 09:00 - 15:30 EDT

Virtual Event
Join us for our virtual conference on Weaponized Information in partnership with Georgetown University, Center for Security Studies.

Our capstone event will focus discussion around understanding the information environment, exploring weaponized information, and discovering possible solutions. The information dimension is constantly changing with the explosion of data and hyper-connectedness enabled by social media, the Internet of Things, and emerging technologies. Weaponized Information will permeate our daily existence, fundamentally changing how we compete and fight.

Today, actors seek to spread false information quickly in order to erode public trust in traditional alliances and institutions. In the near future, a comprehensive assault on authenticity could be achieved through disruptive technologies like deep fakes, artificial influencers, AI-generated news and dialogue, and virtual/augmented reality.
