With 30 students spanning 7 teams, our Spring 2022 course is the largest we have ever run.
We’re fighting the COVID-19 “infodemic” by creating new methods for the early detection of content that presents the highest risk to health and safety.
We’ve supported state and university-level decision-making throughout COVID-19, providing critical analysis on technical challenges ranging from disease surveillance and forecasting to PPE stockpile management.
The pace of technological change is accelerating. We’re providing policymakers with a roadmap for the future of everything from hypersonics to remote sensing, AI, and biotechnology.
Solving wicked policy challenges requires the distillation of complex technical tradeoffs into core concepts and plain language. As a bridge between policymakers and technologists, we’re advancing approaches in data visualization, risk communication, and digital storytelling to create a shared understanding of emerging threats and opportunities.
We’re pushing beyond reactive approaches to rapidly changing technological, environmental, and social systems by developing technological and analytical tools for foresight. Our goal is to be one step ahead of the next threat, whether it be from a pandemic, disinformation campaign, or the unanticipated impact of an emerging technology.
We don’t simply study problems; we generate ideas and technologies for change. We converge teams and ideas from multiple disciplines to create path-breaking solutions in the public interest.
