Our Research

CSET produces evidence-driven analysis in a variety of forms, from informative graphics to expert testimony to published reports. Our key areas of inquiry are the foundations of AI — such as talent, data and computational power — as well as how it can be used in national security, and what policy tools can be used to shape its development.

What We Do

CSET produces data-driven research at the intersection of security and technology, providing nonpartisan analysis to the policy community. CSET is currently focusing on the effects of progress in artificial intelligence (AI) and advanced computing. We seek to prepare a new generation of decision-makers to address the challenges and opportunities of emerging technologies.

AI and other emerging technologies will deliver profound benefits to society, but they will also introduce new risks. Technologists don’t always consider the details of policy, and policymakers don’t always consider the details of technology."
