Science and Technology
Unprecedented changes at unprecedented speed.
From supercomputing to human enhancements, from brain-computer interfaces to 6G, the unprecedent pace of scientific and technological developments is transforming our societies. High-performance technologies are becoming cheaper, easier to procure and more accessible to a wider range of actors. This has the potential to transform the international peace and security domain, from outer space to deep sea, and everything in between.
As UN Secretary-General António Guterres recently put it, technology is not moving incrementally and neither can we – the time to act is now. That’s why UNIDIR is always proactively scanning the horizon to identify and understand the risks and opportunities arising from science and technology.
