MASTER CLASS DESCRIPTION
Even before the events of February, 2022 it was clear that the world was likely entering a period of extended disorder. Indeed, arguably recent events are only the tip of the (digital) iceberg towards which contemporary governments, societies, and culture are headed. Political change – or at least unprecedented pressure - is in the air, almost everywhere.
In this talk we will look at why this is happening. We'll explore how digital technology has become what philosophers call a "formal cause", i.e. something that does not merely have effects, but that is actually structuring and shaping political and social choices. We’ll also try and glimpse what the digital future holds, and discuss what businesses and business people might do about it.
Dr Milo Jones has been teaching at IE since 2009. He also a Visiting Research Fellow at the Changing Character of War Centre, Pembroke College, Oxford and a Senior Adviser for Geopolitics and Technology at Arcano Partners in Madrid. At IE, Milo teaches “Intelligence Tools for Businesspeople” and "Geopolitics for Businesspeople" in the MBA and Masters in Finance Programmes. Milo's MOOC, "Intelligence Tools for the Digital Age", is available on Coursera. In 2013, Stanford University Press published his book Constructing Cassandra: Reframing Intelligence Failure at the CIA, 1947-2001, which is based on Milo’s 2009 PhD dissertation.
In the past, Milo worked as a Senior Manager for Accenture in London and as a stockbroker at Morgan Stanley Dean Witter in New York. He also served as an officer in the US Marine Corps and is a graduate from the US Army’s Airborne School. He is a Fellow of the Center for the Study of Digital Life, a member of the International Institute for Strategic Studies, and a member of the Association of Former Intelligence Officers. A native of Manhattan, Milo now lives in Warsaw.
