Chris Miller

Author of Financial Times’ Business Book of the Year 2022, Chip War; Assistant Professor, The Fletcher School; Director, Greenmantle
Professor Chris Miller is an expert on international politics, economics, and technology. He is the author, of Chip War: The Fight for the World’s Most Critical Technology, a book that explains how computer chips have made the modern world—and how the U.S. and China are struggling for control over this fundamental technology. A handful of companies control the manufacturing of all the world’s semiconductors, giving them a chokehold over the computing power on which everything from the biggest data centers to the tiniest Internet-of-Things devices depend. The future of computing, the book argues, will be determined by who controls the ability to produce the world’s most advanced chips. Chip War won Financial Times' Best Business Book of the Year award and was described by The New York Times as a “a nonfiction thriller.”

Guest Keynote: Chip War: Semiconductors, Geopolitics, and the Future of Data Analytics

Artificial intelligence, machine learning, autonomous cars, the internet of things—all the biggest trends in technology are critically dependent on semiconductors. The advanced chips that power smartphones and self-driving cars today have several billion microscopic components on them. Only two companies in the world can produce these chips, one in South Korea and another in Taiwan. The United States and China are competing for control over the future of computer chips. The outcome of this struggle will determine the shape the future of technology and of geopolitics.
