Carnegie Mellon University

Director's Welcome

The Carnegie Mellon Institute for Strategy & Technology (CMIST), a new academic and research initiative launched in 2023 by Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) is poised to be a thought leader in global and national security issues, policies, and strategies related to digital technologies. This university-wide initiative is devoted to the wise development, use, and governance of new and emerging technologies.  Drawing from CMU’s cutting-edge research across emerging technologies, such as machine learning, cybersecurity, robotics, big data, neuroscience, human-computer interaction, human enhancement, and AI, our team of social scientists at CMIST work to provide cross-cutting analyses of the ethical, social, political, and economic impacts of these emerging technologies. Our researchers take an entrepreneurial problem-solving approach to reducing the risks and maximizing the opportunities of emerging technologies in war and peace, ultimately shaping how digital technologies are changing national and international security.
