CADS presents the technology intelligence unit
(Nanowerk News) The Center for Advanced Defense Studies is proud to announce the launch of its Technology Intelligence Unit (TIU).
TIU revolves around the analysis of science, technology, and innovation. It aims to forecast the application and future impact of emerging technologies, and to ultimately be a strategic resource for researchers, entrepreneurs, technology professionals, investors, business executives, government officials, as well as individuals with a general interest in the future of technology in the world.
Functionally, TIU consists of a core research group as well as Subject Matter Experts, and technology users. It will focus initially on five areas of technological development: Nanotechnology, Advanced Computing, Web Technologies, Wireless Technologies, and Alternative Energy. TIU understands that these technological areas will interact and influence each other as part of the same ecosystem. Advances in Nanotechnology, for example, could lead to important breakthroughs in computing methods, which could consequently help create innovative methods for computer modeling on a molecular level.
TIU is a brand-new hub for sharing and shaping the future of technology and CADS is pleased to promote and initiate its existence.
The Center for Advanced Defense Studies (CADS) is a non-profit, non-governmental national security group that applies the intent-centric paradigm to promote research, innovation and education in information sciences, cognitive studies and information security.
