I’m a consultant and researcher working on technology ethics, geopolitics, governance, safety, and security. Previously, I was Project Assistant Professor at the Cyber Civilization Research Center at Keio University in Tokyo, Japan. I’m especially interested in matching technology capabilities, imports, and exports with local needs to create effective technology strategies. My goal is maximizing shared social benefit from technology while minimizing associated risks.
In addition, I chair the IEEE P7009 Standard on the Fail-Safe Design of Autonomous and Semi-Autonomous Systems working group and am a member of the Executive, Policy, and Outreach (which I previously chaired) committees of The IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems. I also serve as a board trustee at the Seed Token Project.
By means of constant travel and odd-hours conference calls, I engage with a globally diverse group of universities, companies, and regulatory bodies on global technological landscapes and the social, economic, legal, and political implications of emerging technologies.
