Everyone knows DARPA developed the Internet, but it’s lesser known that DARPA shepherded inventions like pocket-sized GPS, Siri, night vision goggles, self-driving cars, and countless other technologies.

The Silicon Valley veteran and former co-COO of Dreamworks Interactive has assembled a team of experts to solve some of the biggest problems in cybersecurity and big data. Join Dan as he discusses his journey to DARPA, how the agency is applying software innovation to issues like human trafficking, how computers will soon self-heal after a hacking attempt, and how technologies designed for national security will also make the world a better place.
