GENIA selected to support Minerva Initiative Grant awarded by DoD

The United States Department of Defense recently announced the award of $28.7 million in grants to academic project teams, through the Minerva Research Initiative — to support research in the behavioral and social sciences.

GENIA Latin America and Johnston Analytics were the organizations selected to support ‘The Future of Human Governance’, the research awarded to the Center for Anticipatory Intelligence at USU and North Carolina State University.

GENIA will support the study by serving as an entry point to Latin American markets; and will provide expert insights into sociotechnical systems research, Machine Learning, and the growth of authoritarianism enabled by Artificial Intelligence in Latin America. “Our research will be pioneering”, said Jean García Periche, Director of Governments at GENIA, “We will focus on 6 case studies that measure the impact of the increasing use of surveillance systems, as well as the existing perspectives of the private sector, the public sector and the regional academy, on the adoption of AI-powered technology. No one is measuring this yet.” The project has started and will be carried out until 2025 in 6 countries of Latin America. The research findings will be published in 2025 with the purpose of continuing to prepare current and future leaders in government, business, and academia with a sophisticated understanding of how cyber, data science, bioengineering, climate change and other rapidly evolving trends today are converging into unprecedented transformative threats and opportunities.
