Spies, Lies and Algorithms with Amy B. Zegart



The past, present, and future of American intelligence...where are we going and how well are we doing

Feb 02, 2022 - Feb 02, 2022. From: 12:00 PM to 01:00 PM

Amy B. Zegart has been analyzing the challenges that American intelligence faces for the last 30 years, and she believes we are at a reckoning point. Join us for a talk with Zegart, the author of Spies, Lies, and Algorithms: The History and Future of American Intelligence where she puts her thoughts into context. 

In our conversation, we'll explore some of the key points that she argues have placed American intelligence in crisis. Drawing on interviews with current and former intelligence officials and extensive and diverse research,  she'll discuss how weak intelligence makes the US more vulnerable to attacks on power grids, water supply, elections, corporate network servers, and nuclear weapons; how artificial intelligence, quantum computing, social media, and the Internet are reshaping politics, societies, and economics; the rise of open source intelligence; why US congressional oversight so rarely works effectively or smoothly; and why cyberspace is the ultimate cloak-and-dagger battleground. Zegart is one of the US's leading experts on intelligence and a professor at Stanford University, where she is a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, and she is a contributing writer at The Atlantic.

Following the discussion, you'll be able to ask questions via our online platform.
