Jacob Helberg joins Alex Moazed for a special episode detailing Helbergs new book The Wires of War. Helberg, who previously led Google’s global internal product policy efforts to combat disinformation and foreign interference, discusses the current grey war between the United States and China. The two dig into how technology is being utilized by state agencies to shape opinion and spread misinformation. Jacob explains how this tech-fueled war will alter the world’s balance of power and explores ways the U.S. can combat this quickly escalating two-front technology cold war between democracy and autocracy.
Jacob Helberg is a senior adviser at the Stanford University Center on Geopolitics and Technology and an adjunct fellow at the Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS). Helberg also co-chairs the Brookings Institution China Strategy Working Group, where is helping support and lead research efforts focused on China’s intentions, foreign policy, and what the right long-term U.S. strategy should be to meet the challenge. From 2016 to 2020, Helberg led Google’s internal global product policy efforts to combat disinformation and foreign interference. Helberg has a M.S. in cybersecurity risk and strategy from New York University.
