The stuff of movies: DARPA, innovation, and national security

Ever watch a James Bond film and wonder if the government really builds cool gadgets and technological breakthroughs like Q? it does! A unit of the Department of Defense called DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency) creates moonshot-type projects aimed at advancing U.S. national security. This is the agency that started the internet, GSP, and all kinds of other tech we use everyday. In this session, we will look at a sampling of gadgets from James Bond film, and compare them to real-life research efforts at DARPA. In doing so, we will discuss the importance of research and development to national security, how new technologies go from idea to reality, and quickly look at a few key areas DARPA is focused on now that may have major impact on our future
