Dr. Horowitz will draw on his extensive research on military innovation, as well as his experience working in the Department of Defense, to discuss key trends and technologies that will shape the future of warfare. From robots to lasers, the talk will focus on the challenges and opportunities for the United States and the world as the Information Age continues to shape the potential tools available for military.
The talk is part of the Penn Lightbulb Café, a free public-lecture series presented by the School of Arts & Sciences and the Office of University Communications that takes arts, humanities and social-sciences scholarship out of the classroom for a night on the town. Each hour-long talk begins at 6 p.m. and is followed by an audience Q&A. Café events are free and open to the public. Seating is limited. Menu items will be available for purchase.
