*********************************** until the position is filled.
The Technology & Innovation Project will be led by former Secretary of Defense and Belfer Professor of Technology & Global Affairs Ash Carter in his new role as Director of the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs and Innovation Fellow at MIT. He and other project principals will explore the critical role of innovation and technology in addressing challenges in the U.S. and across the globe. TIPs mission is to foster bridges between technology leaders, young innovators, and the public good. By promoting innovation and by building stronger connections between technology-driven change and public purpose, TIP will aim to create an overall innovative ecosystem which will in particular enhance the lives of a greater portion of the population, reinforcing social unity and support for the innovative progress. During his time as Secretary of Defense, Carter became known for ensuring the Pentagon thought outside its five-sided box. To make the department more innovative and competitive against rapidly- evolving world threats, Carter opened Pentagon outposts in Silicon Valley, Boston, Austin, and other tech hubs to reconnect the military to innovative private companies and leaders, created the Defense Digital Service to bring tech experts to the Pentagon for a tour of duty, and established a new Defense Innovation Board (chaired by Eric Schmidt of Google / Alphabet) as well as the Pentagons first Innovation Chief Innovation Officer position. TIP will explore whether analogous connections can be made between Americas unrivaled innovative engine and the broader national purpose of preserving the American dream. One strand of TIPs activity will be to research policy options designed to strengthen the United States technological dominance across multiple arenas including, but not limited to biosciences, data science, materials science, engineering, autonomous systems, artificial intelligence, social networks, and virtual augmented reality. TIP will draw lessons from Secretary Carters decades-long career in linking technology to national security, applying his experience and lessons to broader public purpose. TIP will also seek to harness the enthusiasm and dynamism of young students to solve some of the thorniest problems that arise from disruptive technological change. Since the specter of impaired U.S. competitiveness in the global economy and an unskilled and underprepared talent pool represents a national security threat, building bridges between the next generation of innovators and public purpose can favorably influence the course of history.
