From cyberattacks to artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles to automation, technology continues to shape nearly every aspect of modern life. It’s no wonder then that MIT has hired R. David Edelman as Director of their new Project on Technology, the Economy, & National Security. Congratulations David!
One of the top advisors on the digital economy at the Obama White House, Dr. Edelman has spent a decade as one of America’s foremost voices on technology’s effect on the economy, education, national security, and our daily lives. He has led engagement with hundreds of technology companies around the world; advised the President on disruptive and emerging technologies; and was product manager of an over $15 billion portfolio of Presidential programs.
Dubbed the President’s “Geek-in-Chief” and named one of Forbes’ “30 Under 30” leaders in Law & Policy, Edelman was the first director for International Cyber Policy at the NSC. He is a graduate of Yale and Oxford.
Are you an Explorer, Builder, Director, or Negotiator?
Chances are, you’re a mix. But what does that mean exactly? Find out how neuroscientist Dr. Helen Fisher’s discovery of these four basic biological styles of thinking and behaving help improve the way we lead, innovate, perform, and build teams and relationships.
Chief Scientific Advisor for Match.com and Co-Founder of NeuroColor, Dr. Fisher’s personality questionnaire, The Fisher Temperament Inventory, was developed with the use of fMRI brain scanning to find your unique “neural personality signature.” Analyzing broader human interactions, her business-world application reveals specifically what makes each person tick, how they can reach others, and what they can bring to the organization.
Featured in Harvard Business Review’s March-April 2017 issue on “The New Science of Teamwork” and in the 2017 book, The Leading Brain: Powerful Science-Based Strategies for Achieving Peak Performance, Fisher’s groundbreaking discoveries show how understanding the biology underlying personality styles can be used to enhance teamwork, corporate boards, and personal success.
Dr. Fisher has worked with VISA, Deloitte, Proctor and Gamble, and American Express, among many other companies. Named a TED All-Star and one of “the 15 most amazing women in science today” by Business Insider, Helen has addressed audiences at Fortune magazine, SXSW, and The World Economic Forum.
David E. Sanger’s lead story in The New York Times, Trump Inherits a Secret Cyberwar Against North Korean Missiles, has been front and center in the media – revealing how the U.S. tried to use cyber strikes to sabotage North Korean missile tests.
National Security Correspondent for The New York Times, David E. Sanger writes compelling front-page analyses of geopolitics, intelligence and globalization, exposing and explaining the complex events of our time.
In recent years, Sanger has been at the forefront of the big stories about cyber conflict, North Korea, Russia, and nuclear proliferation.
The 2016 docu-thriller Zero Days was largely based on Sanger’s national bestseller, Confront and Conceal: Obama's Secret Wars and Surprising Use of American Power, which Foreign Affairs called an “astonishingly revealing insider’s account.”
