Mapping America's Tech Future

March 20, 2024 • 4:00 – 5:00 pm EDT

CSIS is pleased to announce the launch of a new series of discussions on advanced technology, led by Dr. Dario Gil, Senior Vice President and Director of Research for IBM and a member of the CSIS Board of Trustees.  Dr. Gil will lead periodic discussions with technology pioneers in America, bringing insights to the policy community about technologies on the horizon that will have transformative impact on America's economy and society.

The inaugural discussion will be with Dr. Dario Gil and Dr. Sudip Parikh, moderated by Dr. John Hamre.  Dr. Parikh is the chief executive officer of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.  Dr. Parikh began his career as a macromolecular biochemist, but gradually moved into and to the top of the science policy community in the United States.

The focus of the inaugural seminar will be the recently released report The State of Science in America.  Dr. Parikh is one of the cochairs of the Science and Technology Action Committee, on which Dr. Gil serves as a founding member.  The State of Science in America is a penetrating insight into the true state of scientific inquiry in America.  As stated in the preface, "the United States can no longer take its position in the world for granted."  For the past 70 years, open science was harnessed to national purposes, creating the most productive enhancement of quality of life and living standards in America and in the world in all of human history.  America's leading role is now in question.  Dr. Parikh and Dr. Gil will discuss the dynamics of science and technology in America today, and the crucial role that the United States government plays in ensuring a promising future through science.

This event was made possible through general support to CSIS.
