The Stanford Peace Innovation Lab: Designing Technology for a More Peaceful World

There are many ways to measure violence, but until the last decade there weren’t any good ways to measure peace. However, as billions more sensors get embedded in our environment every year, and as those sensors become ever better at detecting human social behavior, we can now measure positive interactions between people in real time, all over the world. This is revolutionary, because it enables PeaceTech entrepreneurs to see and understand peaceful behavior between all sorts of groups like never before. That ability, in turn, allows us to design new technologies that promote peaceful interactions, and then validate or redesign these innovations based on empirical measurement. The results are world-changing, and provide the basis for a new theory of preventive defense and positive security. In this talk, Margarita Quihuis and Mark Nelson will offer an overview of these trends and a glimpse into the future.
