Working in collaboration with partners at Arizona State University, Crossbow Analytics is working on a project looking at historical case studies of State use of CBW in assassinations and whether these incidents have an effect on the strength and stability of the norms prohibiting CBW use.
Crossbow Analytics is working with a team of analysts looking at whether we can identify apocalyptic or millenarian religious movements that have the intent to use CBW to bring about their endtimes vision. Often these groups see themselves as pitted in a "cosmic war" with catastrophic results.
Crossbow Analytics is working to identify novel and emerging biological weapons threats.
Crossbow Analytics has been consulting on the potential misuse of artificial intelligence based on large language models that could potentially be used to develop biological weapons.
Crossbow Analytics participated in an exercise for the University of Cambridge's Centre for the Study of Existential Risk. The exercise examined how to build a better collective understanding of the possible implications of efforts to enhance biological technology and research governance.
Crossbow Analytics participated in an exercise with colleagues at the State University of New York--Albany to examine whether COVID-19 might incentivize or disincentivize States from developing biological weapons. SUNY-Albany undertook this project with the US Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA).
