Lectures and Workshops

Dr. Antebi provides lectures and workshops to the open public and professionals on a variety of themes,
here are some of them:

Lectures

Technology and National Security:
Robotics, Drones, Artificial intelligence, Cyber, and The World That Is Changing Around Us

Robotics, artificial intelligence and other computing technologies affect and change many aspects of our daily lives but also our personal and national security. What is their influence on the international arena? On national security? and on our lives as citizens of advanced countries?

 Artificial intelligence and its impact on our future

Current and future developments in the field of artificial intelligence will change our lives end-to-end and influence the reality in which we live. New technological capabilities will affect our jobs, health care, commerce, media, education, and our national and personal security. How does artificial intelligence work? What are the current and future trends in the field? What opportunities will they have? Moreover, what are the challenges we must be prepared for in the various areas of life and in security in particular?

 Robots and Artificial Intelligence: The end of mankind, or will they save us from ourselves?

As robotics and artificial intelligence become more and more common, a wide variety of questions arise, including moral and legal issues, such as whether it is moral to allow a robot to kill a man on the battlefield. Does the benefit of using them outweigh the risks? Moreover, is there a real chance that robots will surpass us in their abilities and control us?

 The Future Battlefield

How will the future battlefield look like? Will it become more and more like a computer game? How does an advanced military technology affect the international arena? Will it change the balance of power in our world?


The Boomerang Effect –Terror, State and Technology

Who benefits more from the technology? State or terrorist organizations? In an age when different technologies become cheap, available and easy to operate, the question that arises is: whether the states, which have invested in it, are more prone to enjoy its benefits, or perhaps it will be those criminals and terrorist organizations who purchase them from the shelf and use them for their own needs.

During the lecture, the "boomerang effect" will be presented by the case study of drones, as well as the coming technologies that might become "a boomerang". We will contemplate together how different countries should and can deal with it better and maybe even prevent it.

 The Drone Revolution: From the battlefield to the street and back

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV's) and drones used in a growing list of places around the world. How can we promote the use of these systems? Perhaps they should be restricted. In addition, who gains more benefit from their use, the state or terrorist organizations?

 

Robots, UAVs, and A.I. on the battlefield:
Could the future battlefield be empty of humans?

Robotics and A.I. are gaining ground in many areas of life, and are some of the leading fields in combat on the battlefield. Where are robots deployed in today’s battlefield? What tasks do they perform? Are we able to conceive of future battlefields devoid of people and where wars are remote-controlled?

Workshops

Catch the boomerang - Assessments for dealing with technological changes

The purpose of this workshop is to give participants tools to deal with issues of technological innovation by first exposing them to the extensive meaning of the "disruptive innovation phenomenon”. Next, to understand the threat of the boomerang effect and allow them to experiment with technological forecasting, the identification of threats and opportunities, and to equip them with the capabilities to do so in their respective professional fields.

The workshop provides participants with knowledge in the following areas:

  •      Disruptive innovation and the impact of rapid technological changes on different areas of life

  •      Technological forecasting and policymaking

  •      Risk management and reaction

Technological Forecasting and Policymaking

The purpose of this workshop is to enable participants to comprehend different types of future forecasting and policymaking based on the forecasting findings.

Participants will be exposed to various future forecasting methodologies, research-building processes that enable forecasting, and proceeding from that basis, the design of relevant policies that fit the requirements of the organization.
