Description

Register now for Perry World House's 2019 Global Order Colloquium, 'How Emerging Technologies are Rewiring the Global Order,' taking place on Tuesday, September 24.


Join Perry World House and leaders from government, industry and academia as we discuss the critical questions shaping the future of the world, including:

  • How will advances in artificial intelligence shape global competition?
  • What can democratic regimes do to counter the use of emerging technologies for disinformation, propaganda campaigns, and election interference?
  • How will emerging technologies change the way societies think about privacy, surveillance, and human rights?
  • What are the roles and responsibilities of large, transnational corporations given their control of vast amounts of private data?
