This event is part of a series cosponsored with the US Army Training and Doctrine Command on the weaponization of information. The information dimension is constantly changing with the explosion of data and hyper-connectness enabled by social media, the Internet of Things, and emerging technologies. Weaponized Information will permeate our daily existence, fundamentally changing how we compete and fight. Today, actors seek to spread false information quickly in order to erode public trust in traditional alliances and institutions. In the near future, a comprehensive assault on authenticity could be achieved through disruptive technologies like deep fakes, artificial influencers, AI-generated news and dialogue, and virtual/augmented reality.
This week’s presenter, Vincent H. O’Neil, is an Army veteran, West Point graduate, and Sci-Fi author. Join us as he discusses the information disruption age and science fiction as they relate to the operational environment.
