2/8 I look at #GLOBSEC from the perspective of how "small states" in Central & Eastern Europe set out to improve their positions within the social hierarchy of the Western community after they had joined the EU & NATO. Slovakia is a particularly interesting case for two reasons:

Explainer of my recent @GLOBSEC paper (link at end) on #NATO policy on #innovation and #AI, what should come next, and how that could also help #Ukraine.

Background bit: I explain the concept of General-Purpose Technology (GPT). AI is a GPT.

For any new technology, one could reason that high defence spending and a robust defence industry could internalise: hire lots of new talent and done.

Aim is to tap into a broader pool of innovative talent that is...
