In an era of the Internet of Things, Programmable Drones, Robotics, Lasers, Software-Defined Everything, Machine Intelligence, Object Recognition, Smart Drugs, Brainwear, and Cyber and Social Warfare the modern military machine is not only unprepared, but for the most part, completely unaware of the way emerging technologies can be deployed against them. Concurrently, old technology such as Infrared, electronic jammers, and EMP is all being reimagined and the cost of all these tools is falling to make innovative attack methods available, not just to State actors but Terrorists, Criminals and your local street kids.
Futurists Skeeve and Shanti will explore some of the new technological tools available on the internet, demonstrate and discuss areas of most concern and highlight methods of attack to be prepared for.
Skeeve and Shanti are futurists. Building on his expertise in software engineering they advise widely to provide insight into the implications of new technology. This includes Future Crime & Critical Infrastructure Protection, Security Robotics and Technology based Neuroscience and, most important for this audience, Black-teaming to develop theoretical attack scenarios.
