The overarching question imparting urgency to this exploration is: Can U.S.-Russian contention in cyberspace cause the two nuclear superpowers to stumble into war? In considering this question we were constantly reminded of recent comments by a prominent U.S. arms control expert: At least as dangerous as the risk of an actual cyberattack, he observed, is cyber operations’ “blurring of the line between peace and war.” Or, as Nye wrote, “in the cyber realm, the difference between a weapon and a non-weapon may come down to a single line of code, or simply the intent of a computer program’s user.”
Chief Data Officer for GivingTuesday, Woodrow Rosenbaum, will dive into how the organization seeks to leverage recent experiences and innovations in data engineering and machine learning to better our understanding of how aid is deployed during crisis (and what can be done to improve this process). The session will further explore how this knowledge can be operationalized and digitized into a useful format for other actors in the sector.
