Speakers Elsa Kania

Please join ASPI’s International Cyber Policy Centre (ICPC) for a public address by Elsa Kania, adjunct fellow in the Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. Elsa will talk about China, technology and the future of warfare.

Elsa’s expertise lies in Chinese defence innovation and emerging technologies, particularly artificial intelligence. Her research interests include Chinese military modernisation, information warfare and defence science and technology. Her most recent publication “Battlefield Singularity: Artificial Intelligence, military revolution and China’s future military power” was accompanied by an essay in Foreign Affairs magazine. Elsa is also an independent analyst, consultant and co-founder of the China Cyber and Intelligence Studies Institute (CCISI). A graduate of Harvard College, her thesis focused on the evolution of the PLA’s strategic thinking on information warfare. She speaks Mandarin and in 2014-15 was a Boren Scholar in Beijing.

Elsa Kania will be based at ICPC for three weeks as a Fulbright specialist. In addition to this Fulbright grant, her visit is also made possible thanks to the generous support of ICPC core sponsors. A canapes and drinks reception will conclude the event.
