China's Civilian Space Program: A Conversation with Alanna Krolikowski

China's AI Innovation Ecosystem

The CSIS Technology Policy Program invites you to a discussion and release of a new report on the state of China's AI innovation ecosystem. Around the world policymakers have recognized the critical importance of AI to economic growth and competitiveness, as well as national power. Few countries have embraced this view as fervently as China. China sees an opportunity to catapult itself into a position of global leadership in the AI age. The world has taken notice. AI has taken center stage in the “technology cold war” between the United States and China, and the “AI race” between them has become a central theme in global debates around the future of emerging technologies. Please join us for an interactive discussion with senior expertson the state of the Chinese AI ecosystem, and how the U.S. should respond to China’s progress in AI. This report launch is part of theChina Innovation Policy Series, and made possible by support from our partners: Microsoft Corporation, the Genera...

China's AI Innovation Ecosystem

Does China's Industrial Policy Work?

The United States is deeply concerned about China’s economic rise for both economic and national security reasons. An implicit assumption of this concern is the view that China’s state–led innovation system is a successful alternative to the more market-driven system in the United States and the West. To what extent is this assumption correct? Leading China economists Loren Brandt (University of Toronto) and Thomas Rawski (University of Pittsburgh) present the findings from their latest book,Policy, Regulation, and Innovation in China’s Electricity and Telecom Industries. They and several contributors address this big question by analyzing Chinese industrial policy and the actual performance of Chinese companies in two sectors central to China’s innovation drive. Please join the Freeman Chair in China Studies on September 26 as Brandt and Rawski present their findings, which identify both the strengths and weaknesses of Chinese efforts, and discuss the implications for China’s...

Implementing Innovation: The 21st Century National Security Innovation Partnership Conference

Humanitarian Implications of Cyber Conflicts

How does cyber conflict affect civilians? The threat and risks of cyber conflict are increasing, but it is unclear how principles of international humanitarian law apply. Cyber attacks can be precise in their effect, but many have caused unanticipated consequences, disrupting shipping companies, national healthcare systems or city services. With the advent of the internet of things, where many more devices and services will be vulnerable to cyber attack, civilian populations are more connected and digitally exposed than ever. Does increasing cyber conflict between states risk unanticipated humanitarian costs? Conversely, could cyber operations reduce the risk to civilian populations by giving states an alternative to traditional kinetic options? What kind of rules are possible to best reduce risk and guide state behavior? Join us for an interactive discussion of the humanitarian implications of cyber conflict. Panelists will include: Colonel Gary Corn, Director and Adjunct Professor...
