Bridging the digital divide
By Atlantic Council
Alongside Dr. Linton Wells II of George Mason University, Dr. Bray laid out practical ways for individuals, governments, and companies to address the digital divide on an episode of the STEMTalks podcast.
Dr. Linton Wells II brings more than twenty years of leadership experience at the interface of policy and technology. Recent research has focused on international cyber resilience and critical infrastructure protection, building resilience in the space domain, countering disinformation in complex information environments, and supply chain risk management, as well as the policy implications of accelerating, converging technological change in areas like biotechnology, robotics, augmented intelligence, advanced manufacturing, information technology, nanotechnology and energy. This includes the national security implications of the replacement of labor by automation and artificial intelligence, and the ability to reduce pressures for migration and marginalization by building resilience at community levels.
