Posted on 16th June 2020

Described by the Smithsonian as one of the nation’s 100 leading innovators, Peter Singer is Strategist at New America, having previously held posts at the Office of the Secretary of Defense, Harvard University and as the founding director of the Center for 21st Century Security and Intelligence at Brookings. More recently, Singer has become known as the author of multiple best-selling, award winning books. No author, living or dead, has more books on the professional military readings lists.

His latest work, “Burn-In: A Novel of the Real Robotic Revolution”, has been described by the creator of Lost and Watchmen as “A visionary new form of storytelling—a rollercoaster ride of science fiction blended with science fact”. With every tech, trend, and scene drawn from the real world, Burn-In blends a techno thriller’s excitement with nonfiction’s insight to illuminate the darkest corners of our chilling tomorrow.

Access Partnership’s Michael Clauser was in conversation with Peter Singer on 22 June, where Singer discussed his new book and the role Big Tech plays in the narrative, as well as his views on technology, cybersecurity and warfare.
