Future Crimes: Anticipating Tomorrow’s Crimes Today Using Technology | Marc Goodman
Marc Goodman is a global thinker, writer and consultant focused on the disruptive impact of advancing technologies on security, business and international affairs. Over the past twenty years, he has built his expertise in next generation security threats such as cyber crime and cyber terrorism working with organizations such as Interpol, the United Nations, NATO, the Los Angeles Police Department and the U.S. Government. Mr. Goodman founded the Future Crimes Institute to inspire and educate others on the security implications of newly emerging technologies. In addition, Mr. Goodman serves as the Chair for Policy, Law and Ethics at Silicon Valley’s Singularity University.
In this presentation, he explores the criminal and terrorist opportunities created by virtual worlds, robotics, artificial intelligence, genomics, synthetic biology and nanotechnology. Criminals have always been quick to adopt new technologies, with the police often trailing behind. The unprecedented rapid rate of scientific progress is creating new opportunities for transnational criminal organizations to exploit advances in technology for unintended and nefarious purposes. While much attention has been focused on the common cyber crimes of today, those challenges will pale in comparison to what is coming next.
