Lighting Round at PeaceTech Summit: Engineering Durable Peace

On September 19, 2014 I presented a lighting talk at the PeaceTech Summit that took place in Washington, D.C.  While I was only able to stay for the lighting rounds (alas school called!), the “upbeat” tone of the conference made it worthwhile. I am sharing the recording of the conference as posted on the USIP website. Source: USIP “The summit brought together corporate and government officials, engineers, technologists and NGO leaders to look at how tech is being used in conflict zones and ask, “Why aren’t we doing more in conflict prevention?” The event also launched the PeaceTech Lab, a new organization dedicated to developing and deploying technologies, media and data for conflict management and peace-building. Speakers included: Opening Remarks Stephen J. Hadley, Chairman of the Board, U.S. Institute of Peace Dan Mote, President, National Academy of Engineering Technologist Meets Peacebuilder Vint Cerf, Chief Internet Evangelist, Google Jane Holl Lute, Former U.N. Peacekeeping and U.S. Government Official Keynote Remarks with Q&A Alan Shaffer, Assistant Secretary of Defense for Research and Engineering Enabling Entrepreneurs and Corporate Investment in Stressed States A Conversation with Entrepreneurs and Christopher Schroeder (Author of Startup Rising: The Entrepreneurial Revolution Remaking the Middle East) An Introduction to the PeaceTech Lab Sheldon Himelfarb, Director, PeaceTech Initiative, U.S. Institute of Peace Also Featuring Tech for Peacebuilding: Lightning Rounds”
