The Impact of Emerging Technology to Japan's Security and Diplomacy

With the dramatic development of science and technology, today's security environment has changed rapidly. The development of private-sector technology is particularly remarkable. The continued proliferation of the Internet of Things (IoT), artificial intelligence (AI) and robot technology is driving a siesmic transformation of security. In addition to the three domains (land, sea, and air), Space, cyberspace, and the electromagnetic spectrum should be considered as multi-domain operations.

In this session, we will invite international experts to discuss the threats and challenges for Japan, and the impact of technological innovation on diplomacy and security, hearing the efforts of the United States, Europe, India and others.

This session will be co-sponsored with the Institute for Future Engineering.
