Technology, Innovation, and Defending America: A Conversation with Michael Brown

This event will air live on this page on Tuesday, September 13, at 10:00 a.m.

Michael Brown, director of the Defense Innovation Unit at the Department of Defense since its founding in 2015, has been at the forefront of finding ways to field leading-edge commercial capabilities to the military faster and more cost-effectively than traditional defense acquisition methods, from artificial intelligence and hypersonics to robotics, composite materials, and quantum computing.

Please join us for a stimulating and informative discussion with Michael Brown about his accomplishments at DIU, what he envisions the future of DIU will be, and America’s defense agenda for the future.

Hudson Senior Fellow Arthur Herman, author of Freedom’s Forge: How American Business Produced Victory in World War II and director of the Quantum Alliance Initiative, will moderate the discussion.
