Social Media Storms and Early Warning Systems A Deep Dive and Speed Scenarios Workshop

Institute for Security and Technology | Preventitive Defense Project, Stanford University | Nautilus Institute | N2 Collaborative

In the Asia-Pacific region alone, six instances of social media playing a role in nuclear-prone conflicts occurred between August 2017 and January 2018. For decades, strategists have worried about the possibility that states armed with nuclear weapons might mistakenly launch a nuclear strike due to a false alarm originating in its early warning system or due to degraded decision-making.
