Abstract: Science and technology, while transforming society, are also products of society. Their potential and impact are limited by physical laws, but they can also be held in check by the vision and ambition – or lack of these – of the social and cultural context they are developed within.

This talk will examine how understanding and driving social transformation are essential precursors to developing technologies to achieve security. The achievements of science are truly remarkable. But they form just one element of our human pursuit of purpose and meaning.

Obstructing those we oppose is not the same as articulating what we are for. Addressing risks is a means to an end, not the end in itself. The biggest threat we face may be an emerging cultural disconnect within society. Engaging the human dimension has never been more vital.
