Science & Technology

New technologies—from Internet advances to artificial intelligence to synthetic biology and many more—are transforming the global economy and are offering unmatched opportunities to alleviate poverty, raise economic growth, treat disease, and improve lives all over the world. But they also fuel new geopolitical competition and pose unprecedented governance challenges to domestic political institutions. Hoover scholars conduct original research, bring together private sector and public sector leaders, and develop policy recommendations.
