T3: New Threats, New Theories, New Technologies 

T3: New Threats, New Theories, and New Technology is a flagship initiative of the Institute for Strategic Analysis. T3 is a course series, offered throughout an academic year, which will provide diplomatic, intelligence, and military officials with high-level briefings by preeminent faculty and national thought leaders. These briefings will present state-of-the art research in cyber-related topics in computer science, engineering, international relations, artificial intelligence, machine learning, social science, and decision science.

Among the many executive courses for defense, diplomatic, and intelligence leaders, T3 is distinct because it is founded on scientific research. At the same time, faculty presenters have extensive experience in applying basic science findings to policy problems. Furthermore, T3 stands apart from other executive courses by creating a selective cohort so that each course session may be tailored to the participants’ work. In this way, T3 courses and seminars are designed to suit the needs of the government agencies and departments represented by the participants. 

Each T3 cohort includes leaders who have been recommended for admission by their respective agency or department. Our goal is to create high-quality, intellectually diverse cohorts in order to foster unique opportunities for discussion and analysis of the policy frontiers facing our nation and the world. Moreover, our admission format is designed to provide participating organizations with continual oversight of the program.
