About Us

A policy research organization within Georgetown University’s Walsh School of Foreign Service, 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.
