Our guest is Klon Kitchen, who leads the tech policy initiative at the Heritage Foundation. He recently gave a talk titled "Disrupting National Security: The Growing Role of Big Tech in Geopolitics" at the Tulsa Committee on Foreign Relations (or TCFR). At the Heritage Foundation, Kitchen heads an enterprise-wide, interdisciplinary effort to understand and shape our nation's most important technology issues. His personal research focuses on the intersection of technology and national security, with a particular interest in artificial intelligence, autonomous weapons systems, space, and intelligence issues. Prior to joining Heritage, Klon was National Security Advisor to Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska -- and before his time on the Hill, Klon spent 15+ years in the United States intelligence community working on counter-terrorism, counter-proliferation, covert action, and cyber issues.
