Much has been made of the potentially transformative effects of emerging technologies on international relations--with consequences for both strategic stability and U.S. foreign policy. In this session, we will engage with contemporary policy debates concerning the impact of emerging technologies on strategic stability using a historical lens. We will then dive deeply into specific examples of emerging technologies of concern (nuclear modernization; cyber weapons; "AI"; and hypersonic missiles). We conclude with a wargame exercise based on August Cole and PW Singer's Ghost Fleet.
