Show Notes

Today’s episode of “The Convergencepodcast features a conversation with Mr. Doowan Lee, Senior Director from Zignal Labs.  Mr. Lee is a National Security expert in influence intelligence, disinformation analysis, data analytics, network visualization, and great power competition. Before joining Zignal Labs, Mr. Lee served as a professor and principal investigator at the Naval Postgraduate School, where he executed federally funded projects on collaborative information systems, network analysis, and disinformation analysis. His article, entitled The United States Isn’t Doomed to Lose the Information Wars, explores Russian and Chinese disinformation campaigns and was featured in Foreign Policy last month.

The following bullet points highlight key insights from our interview with Mr. Lee:

–    Nations talking about the spread of open societies are attempting to undermine the CCP.

-     The CCP will maintain positive control of all media.

-    The CCP will professionalize information operations.

This policy resulted in the development of the “Great Firewall,” the “Golden Shield“ project, and the PLA’s Strategic Support Forces.

 

Stay tuned to the Mad Scientist Laboratory for our next podcast with three panelists from the Joint Artificial Intelligence Center (JAIC)Ms. Jacqueline Tame, Acting Deputy Director, Chief Performance Officer; Ms. Alka Patel, Head of AI Ethics Policy; and Dr. Jane Pinelis, Chief, Testing and Evaluation, Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning (AI/ML) — as we discuss the ethics of AI and ML, integrating these emerging technologies into the Joint Force, and the future of talent management in this space on 3 December 2020!
