Carnegie Mellon University launched its Institute for Strategic Analysis (CMU-ISA) this week, with Kiron Skinner, the Hoover Institution’s W. Glenn Campbell Research Fellow, as director. The CMU-ISA’s focus will be on the intersection of computer science, cybersecurity, decision science, and international relations; it is a joint effort of CMU’s School of Computer Science, the Deitrich College of Humanities and Social Sciences, and the College of Engineering. It plans to serve as a liaison between government officials and CMU, raising awareness about prospective strategic problems and potential solutions through a lecture series, fellowships, and short courses.
