    Lawfare Daily: Chinese Property Ownership and National Security

    Lawfare Daily: Chinese Property Ownership and National Security

    Across the country, state lawmakers are joining the effort to address the perceived national security threat from China by passing a number of measures attempting to curb Chinese influences in their states. One such effort in Florida prevents Chinese citizens from owning property in the state. Lawfare’s Associate Editor Hyemin Han spoke with Matthew Erie, Associate Professor at the University of Oxford, about what makes the Florida law and the ongoing litigation challenging it particularly notable, the state of property rights challenges against Chinese citizens across the U.S., the tension between state and federal oversight of national security issues, and how this fits into the growing economic battles between the U.S. and China.

    Lawfare Daily: Peter Salib on AI Self-Improvement

    Lawfare Daily: Peter Salib on AI Self-Improvement

    In foundational accounts of AI risk, the prospect of AI self-improvement looms large. The idea is simple. For any capable, goal-seeking system, the system’s goal will be more readily achieved if the system first makes itself even more capable. Having become somewhat more capable, the system will be able to improve itself again. And so on, possibly generating a rapid explosion of AI capabilities, resulting in systems that humans cannot hope to control.
    Alan Rozenshtein, Associate Professor of Law at the University of Minnesota and Senior Editor at Lawfare, spoke with Peter Salib, who is less worried about this danger than many. Salib is an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Houston Law Center and co-Director of the Center for Law & AI Risk. He just published a new white paper in Lawfare's ongoing Digital Social Contract paper series arguing that the same reason that it's difficult for humans to align AI systems is why AI systems themselves will hesitate to self-improve.

    Lawfare Archive: Jameel Jaffer on the 'The Drone Memos'

    Lawfare Archive: Jameel Jaffer on the 'The Drone Memos'

    From January 14, 2017: At this week's Hoover Book Soiree, Jack Goldsmith interviewed Jameel Jaffer about his new book, The Drone Memos: Targeted Killing, Secrecy, and the Law.
    It's a wide-ranging discussion about targeted killing and its legality, and of Jaffer's work at the ACLU—where he ran national security litigation until recently—in holding the government to account for its practices. And it includes a fascinating debate between him and Jack about whether, in that role, he won more than he lost or lost more than he won, a debate in which each side takes exactly the opposite view than one might expect.

    Lawfare Archive: Alex Stamos on Fighting Election Disinformation in Real Time

    Lawfare Archive: Alex Stamos on Fighting Election Disinformation in Real Time

    From August 20, 2020: This week on Lawfare's Arbiters of Truth series on disinformation, Evelyn Douek and Quinta Jurecic spoke with Alex Stamos, the director of the Stanford Internet Observatory and former chief security officer of Yahoo and Facebook. Alex has appeared on the podcast before, but this time, they discussed a new coalition he helped set up called the Election Integrity Partnership—a coalition focused on detecting and mitigating attempts to limit voting or delegitimize election results. Disinformation and misinformation around the U.S. presidential election has already started popping up online, and it’s only going to increase as November draws closer. The coalition aims to counter this in real time. So how will it actually work?
    They also asked Alex for his hot takes on TikTok—the popular video sharing platform facing pressure over concern about influence from the Chinese government.

    Lawfare Daily: Pablo Chavez on Digital Solidarity

    Lawfare Daily: Pablo Chavez on Digital Solidarity

    The recently released International Cyberspace and Digital Strategy focuses on building digital solidarity as an alternative to digital sovereignty policies. Lawfare's Fellow in Technology Policy and Law, Eugenia Lostri, spoke with Pablo Chavez, Adjunct Senior Fellow with the Center for a New American Security’s Technology and National Security Program. Pablo first promoted the idea of digital solidarity in a Lawfare article in 2022. They talked about the range of policies that can fall under the digital sovereignty category, how digital solidarity offers an alternative position, and the evolution of the term from his 2022 article to the international strategy.
    The article Eugenia and Pablo reference in their conversation is “Defending the ‘S Word’: The Language of Digital Sovereignty Can be a Tool of Empowerment,” by Arindrajit Basu.

Love the show ( may 10 episode)

Thank you for this great podcast!!

Just a bone to pick !

May 10th episode,
When Roger opened the dialog about who might be the prosecution witness, and he invited Jacob , Anna and Ben to answer.
1. He lets Jacob answer
2. He cuts Anna off before she is finished ( rude)
3. He then says “ ok Ben,now what’s the correct answer”?

I found that to be demeaning ,offensive and off putting.

Thank you for letting me express my thoughts

e-cooling ,

Fabulous Roger Parloff

Crystal clear and love the humour

Serious TDS

These guys have some serious TDS. But if you want to here a biased and usually wrong legal analysis of Trump issues or an establishment take on other issues, this is the podcast for you.
