Our research spans a wide range of fields with new technology at the crux. We examine issues from cyber repression and data privacy to geoengineering, global health security, and weaponized 3D printing. Our members are committed, optimistic, and innovative researchers who aim to produce quality work that will have a profound influence on policy now and in the future.
Located in Washington, DC, we have a unique opportunity to interact with leading policy makers on these important research topics. Our events, publications, and workshops are open to a broad community of professionals so that we ensure the best possible collaboration of ideas and produce the most informative results.
Our community is comprised of a diverse group of individuals sharing one goal: to produce forward-thinking research on the future relationship between humans and technology. We welcome participation from corporations, government and nongovernment organizations, think tanks, and other academic institutions in order to create the most comprehensive body of work.

New technologies are creating winners and losers.
As these new technologies emerge, we are confronted with important ethical, political, and societal dilemmas that require thoughtful and forward-looking answers. This center is a nexus of innovative research where scholars from a variety of fields think critically about how the future of technology will impact human development and security in a myriad of ways. This is why I founded the center. Please join us.
