Join Hudson Institute Senior Fellow Bryan Clark, leadership expert and technology entrepreneur David Roberts, and military expert and author Lt. Col. David Grossman for a discussion on the shift away from attrition and lethality as the primary paths to success in military operations. The advent of sophisticated surveillance systems, artificial intelligence-enabled unmanned vehicles, and electromagnetic, information, and cyber weapons has introduced methods of countering aggressors in ways that reduce a military’s reliance on destruction and killing. Chinese and Russian forces are already exploiting these trends in their gray-zone operations, whereas U.S. tactics continue to generate collateral casualties that undermine America’s strategic goals. The U.S. military must recognize that information and decision-making are becoming the central battlefield of future competitions or find itself at a distinct disadvantage. Please join our expert panel for a discussion of these critical issues.
