International Laboratory for the Study of International Order and the New Regionalism Hosts World Economic Forum Cyber Security Workshop
Russian academics, experts, and representatives of the business and IT communities convened at the Faculty of World Economy on September 26 to participate in a Workshop on “Long Term Cyber Security Futures” organized by the World Economic Forum, The UC Berkeley Center for Long Term Cyber Security and the CNA’s Institute for Public Research.
The Workshop discussed several scenarios which explored the impact that “game changing” technologies such as Artificial Intelligence, Quantum Computing, and Big Data will have on international politics, economics, and social relations. While participants presented a diversity of views on the nature of the challenges these technologies present, they agreed that a clear set of international rules and norms needs to be established to govern their use. Alan Cohn from the World Economic Forum and Prof. Andrej Krickovic, of the Faculty of World Economy led the workshop. The event was co-sponsored by the International Laboratory on the Study of World Order and The New Regionalism and Ovanes Agopov, Manager at the Faculty of World Economy and Students from the Faculty’s Joint Bachelor’s Program with the University of London, Anna Drozhdova and Gleb Golubkov aided in its preparation and organization. The event is part of a series of international workshops held in Silicon Valley, Washington, Singapore, Hong Kong, Munich and Geneva which will lead to a published report “Long Term Cyber Security Futures 2025” that will be presented at the next World Economic Forum in Davos in January 2019.
