And I couldn't agree more. Our committee, and the Emerging Threats and Capabilities Subcommittee in particular, has spent a considerable amount of time reviewing and understanding adversarial threats, most notably from China and Russia, while also keeping an eye on emerging technology such as quantum science, artificial intelligence [AI], nanotechnology, synthetic biology, autonomy, and robotics."
