Book Launch: Spies, Lies, and Algorithms: The History and Future of American Intelligence

February 3, 2022 • 11:00 am – 12:00 pm EST

Spying has never been more ubiquitous―or less understood. The world is drowning in spy movies, TV shows, and novels, but universities offer more courses on rock and roll than on the CIA and there are more congressional experts on powdered milk than espionage. In her new book Spies, Lies, and Algorithms, Dr. Amy Zegart separates fact from fiction as she offers an engaging and enlightening account of the past, present, and future of American espionage.

In this conversation with CSIS, Dr. Zegart will share her insights into the most complex challenges facing the U.S. intelligence community, including how new technologies are fundamentally changing the capabilities and purview of traditional intelligence services.

This event is made possible through general support to CSIS.
