Joining Google in 2001, Eric Schmidt has helped grow the company from a Silicon Valley startup to a global leader in technology. As executive chairman, he is responsible for the external matters of Google: building partnerships and broader business relationships, government outreach and technology thought leadership, as well as advising the CEO and senior leadership on business and policy issues. He served as Google CEO from 2001-2011. Prior to joining Google, Schmidt was the chairman and CEO of Novell and chief technology officer at Sun Microsystems, Inc. Previously, he served on the research staff at Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC), Bell Laboratories and Zilog.

Jared Cohen is Director of Google Ideas, and an Adjunct Senior Fellow at the Council on Foreign Relations. Previously, he served as a member of the Secretary of State's Policy Planning Staff and as an advisor to Condoleezza Rice and later, Hillary Clinton. Initially brought in by Rice as a member of the Policy Planning Staff, he was one of the few staffers that stayed under Hillary Clinton. In this capacity, he focused on counter-terrorism, counter-radicalization, Middle East/South Asia, Internet freedom, and fostering opposition in repressive countries. In 2013, Cohen was named by Time Magazine as one of its 100 most influential

In the next decade, five billion new people will come online, posing for our world a host of new opportunities—and concerns. Google’s Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen traveled to thirty-five countries, including some of the world’s most volatile regions and met with political leaders, entrepreneurs, and activists to learn firsthand about the challenges they face.

Eric Schmidt and Jared Cohen tackle some of the most interesting questions about our future as impacted by the dramatic increase in access to information and interconnectivity: how will technology change privacy and security, war and intervention, diplomacy, revolution and terrorism? How will technology improve our lives? What new disruptions can we expect?

On the heels of months of news stories about online privacy and security, how can the U.S. government protect its national security without violating the privacy of its citizens?  What is the balance between national security and individual privacy.

In the age of Wikileaks and Edward Snowden, governments must find a way to balance their legitimate need for secrecy in security matters with demands for increased transparency and accountability from their citizens.
