Winston Churchill warned us of the dangers of powerful technology in the wrong hands: “If we fail, then the whole world, including the United States, including all that we have known and cared for, will sink into the abyss of a new Dark Age made more sinister, and perhaps more protracted, by the lights of perverted science. The Krach Institute for Tech Diplomacy at Purdue’s mission is to make sure that never happens – instead, to create the conditions so the wonders of science can help all of us, in the US and around the world, ensure life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
