Discover how the global landscape of STEM graduates is shifting, potentially reshaping the future of innovation and education worldwide. This blog post analyzes recent education data from the countries with the most graduates in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) fields. For each of the top eleven countries by number of STEM graduates, we present the total number of STEM graduates as well as STEM graduates as a percentage of total graduates in 2020.

In an article published by The Wall Street Journal, Emily S. Weinstein shared her expert insights. The article discusses how the strong collaboration between the U.S. and China in scientific research is weakening due to worsening relations between the two countries.

In his op-ed featured in Defense One, Jaret Riddick discusses the need for the Pentagon to leverage existing laws and new metrics to enhance the research capacity of historically Black colleges and universities (HBCUs) in the United States.

In a Nikkei Asia article discussing the need for a global regulatory framework for artificial intelligence, CSET's Helen Toner offered her expert insights.

Progress in artificial intelligence (AI) depends on talented researchers, well-designed algorithms, quality datasets, and powerful hardware. The relative importance of these factors is often debated, with many recent “notable” models requiring massive expenditures of advanced hardware. But how important is computational power for AI progress in general? This data brief explores the results of a survey of more than 400 AI researchers to evaluate the importance and distribution of computational needs.

CSET's Dr. Jaret C. Riddick was quoted in an article published by GovCon Wire on the challenges faced by the US military in adopting new technology and their search for talent.

The National Interest published an article that cited The Wall Street Journal featuring CSET's William Hannas. The article talks about the significant role that open-source intelligence (OSINT) plays in present-day intelligence gathering, which has become a crucial aspect of national security and diplomacy.
