Marc Goodman: A Vision of Crimes in the Future

“We are at the dawn of a technological arms race, an arms race between people who are using technology for good and those who are using it for ill.” -Marc Goodman

Marc Goodman imagines the future crime and terrorism challenges we will all face as a result of advancing technologies.

He thinks deeply about the disruptive security implications of robotics, artificial intelligence, social data, virtual reality and synthetic biology.

Technology, he says, is affording exponentially growing power to non-state actors and rogue players, with significant consequences for our common global security.

How to respond to these threats? The crime-fighting solution might just lie in crowdsourcing.

Goodman heads the Future Crimes Institute, a think tank and clearinghouse that researches and advises on the security and risk implications of emerging technologies.

He also serves as the Global Security Advisor and Chair for Policy and Law at Singularity University.
