Updated: Feb 5

School of International Service, American University, Keynote Speaker Donald Leka



SIS Dean Shannon Hader welcomed Don Leka, CEO and Founder of Jumptuit, to discuss how to address the need for accurate data in making informed decisions with global ramifications.


The wide-ranging discussion spanned the current East-West Strategic Competition from Ukraine, to the Balkans, to North Africa and the Sahel, and other regions and global events - with a live demonstration of the power of real-time panoptic data, AI, and analytics to better understand probable crises and forecast policies that will shape our future.


A series of video topic segments from the event will follow.
