2+ Minute Video: Welcome to 2035…the Age of Surprise – USAF

From the United States Air Force – Center for Strategy & Technology

The exponential advancement of technology has reached a critical point where not even governments can project the direction humanity is headed. Some researchers forecast an eventual singularity where the lines between humans and machines are blurred.

Discussions of warfighting domains in the past have included land, sea, air, and space.  Recently cyber was added as a current domain of concern. But as cyber capabilities continue to evolve and combine with enablers of rapidly improving artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and biotechnology, new threats may emerge. These threats may manifest at the state, non-state group, or even super-empowered individual levels in the Age of Surprise.

The Air Force Center for Strategy and Technology produced this video as part of an annual study it conducts about strategy and “airpower” in the future.  The information is inspired by findings published by the Blue Horizons graduate student program at The Air University.
