General André Lanata, Supreme Allied Commander Transformation, today (Tuesday 1 October) hosted a discussion by the members of the North Atlantic Council and the NATO Military Committee on the impact of disruptive technologies on our future security.

Speaking at the event, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, said: “Today, emerging and disruptive technologies are having a profound impact on how the Alliance carries out its core tasks. How we understand, adopt and implement those technologies will largely determine our future security, and NATO will play a key role in driving this change”.

The meeting took place in  Genval, Belgium. It was part of the Alliance’s efforts to leverage the power of data science, machine learning and other new technologies to improve its decision-making. This is a follow-up from the Brussels Summit in 2018, where Allied leaders declared that NATO will continue to enhance its intelligence, strategic awareness, advance planning and decision-making.
