The United States finds itself in strategic competition with China and Russia at the same time as its traditional technological superiority faces emergent challenges. The participants addressed how new military technologies might change the strategic dynamic in both Europe and in the Pacific and what these weapons may mean for non-state actors.

The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "Emerging Technology and America’s National Security" on Monday, February 25, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. 

Moderated by Admiral James O. Ellis, Jr. (USN, Ret.), Hoover Institution.

  • Col. T.X. Hammes (USMC, Ret.), National Defense University
  • Margaret Kosal, Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Adm. Gary Roughead (USN, Ret.), Hoover Institution and former Chief of Naval Operations
  • Ralph Semmel, director of Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory
  • Capt. Katie Hedgecock, U.S. Army and Stanford University

This event is open to the general public and part of a series led by George P. Shultz whose intention is to learn from our changing world, to map our governance options in response, and to help structure a variety of efforts going forward.
