Tech innovation can outpace cyber threats, says Microsoft's Brad Smith

AI is having a giant moment of growth, as is the ability for actors to use it nefariously. In an uncertain global environment, how can the US outpace challenges in cyberspace?

“One of the things that I find just fascinating about the development of AI…it's actually an area where if you take the problems seriously and you have an engineering team that's willing and prepared to work on a moment's notice, you can correct the problems far faster than you can solve most problems in life,” said Microsoft Vice Chair and President Brad Smith at this year’s Munich Security Conference during aGlobal Stage livestream conversation, hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

Russia freezing out Ukrainian civilians because it can't beat military, says Microsoft's Brad Smith

What's Russia doing differently now in Ukraine compared to a few months ago?

Microsoft President and Vice Chair Brad Smith thinks the Russians have clearly failed to defeat Ukrainian soldiers, so they've turned to using their weapons against the civilian population and knocking out their power.

"It's as if they're hoping to freeze out 40 million people and force them to flee," he says during a Global Stage livestream conversation hosted by GZERO in partnership with Microsoft.

The Christchurch Call to Action, a political summit initiated by New Zealand’s Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, gathered during the UN’s General Assembly to renew its commitment to creating a safer digital world.

The Summit was formed in 2019 following a massive terror attack in Christchurch that left 51 dead and dozens wounded. The terrorist used social media to livestream the murderous rampage for several minutes, and the video was viewed by thousands before it was removed from the internet.

The Cyber Threat Ain't Going Away | GZERO World

Hackers, innovation, malice & cybercrime

In the 1950s, "phreakers" whistled their ways into free long-distance calls. Steve Wozniak then improved on the scam, making enough cash to get Apple started along with Steve Jobs.

Many of today's hackers are also bored kids trying to beat the system and make a quick buck in the process. But they can also do more sinister things, Ian Bremmer tells GZERO World.

China & Russia are "formidable" cyber adversaries: CISA's Jen Easterly

The next 10 years are critical for America to defend itself from China and Russia in cyberspace, says US cybersecurity chief Jen Easterly.

We'll know by then if we've won or lost the battle for tech innovation against Beijing and Moscow when it comes to things like smart cities, she tells Ian Bremmer on GZERO World.

And despite the Russians being a more urgent threat, the long-term race with China to dominate global tech is arguably even more important.
