Please join the Atlantic Council's Brent Scowcroft Center on International Security to welcome our newest fellow, Dave Anthony, director of the major military-themed computer game series Call of Duty. Anthony will help advance the Center's work on discerning the future of warfare by using unorthodox and innovative perspectives and approaches.

As challenging as global events are already proving, these problems could still get even harder. Power is diffusing from states to nonstate actors. Geopolitically, the locus of power is shifting from the West to the East and South. Accelerating this diffusion is the continuous spread of disruptive technologies that not only change daily life, but also could transform the conduct of war. But these are just the things we know. After spending years creating scenarios of current and future warfare based upon the trends we see today-and some we miss-Mr. Anthony will use his unique skillset to lay out a vision of the threats for which we must prepare, even if we do not see them coming. His remarks and subsequent conversation will focus on how the US government, along with allies and partners, can leverage the skillset of visionary thinkers to gain an edge in military planning as well as on the battlefield. He also will provide solutions to how global powers might mitigate the issues they face.
