Militaries with state-of-the-art information technology sometimes bog down in confusing conflicts. To understand why, it is important to understand the micro-foundations of military power in the information age, and this is exactly what Jon R. Lindsay’s Information Technology and Military Power gives us. As Lindsay shows, digital systems now mediate almost every effort to gather, store, display, analyze, and communicate information in military organizations. He highlights how personnel now struggle with their own information systems as much as with the enemy.
Join us on April 13, as Jon Lindsay sits down to discuss his new book with Brian Cantwell Smith, the Reid Hoffman Professor of Artificial Intelligence and the Human at the Faculty of Information Studies and Ron Deibert, Professor and Director of Citizen Lab at the Munk School of Global Affairs & Public Policy.
