One Brattle Square - Suite 470

Join the Cyber Project with Bruce Schneier as he discusses his paper, The Coming AI Hackers:  Bruce Schneier warns that artificial intelligence will eventually find vulnerabilities in all sorts of social, economic, and political systems, and then exploit them at unprecedented speed, scale, and scope. After hacking humanity, AI systems will then hack other AI systems, and humans will be little more than collateral damage.

Join the Cyber Project and the Defending Digital Democracy Project (D3P) as we convene tech, government, health, and policy experts in an important discussion on the federal government's efforts to work with tech companies and academia in using citizen data to track and mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

Our main question: How do we get this right--to save lives and preserve privacy and security?
