Sheetal Patel, Assistant Director of the CIA for the Transnational and Technology Mission Center, joins Niki in the studio to talk about how important tech is to their work, partnerships with the private sector, and why they are actively recruiting tech workers. They look back at technology that the CIA helped bring to our everyday lives and look forward to the impact of AI.

“The global strategic competition in emerging technology is actually occurring in the private sector. And so, for us, for CIA in particular, but I would say for my intelligence community colleagues as well, working with the private sector has never been so important.” -Sheetal Patel
