In partnership with Arizona State University’s Threatcasting Lab, the Army Cyber Institute created a new graphic novel, “Invisible Force,” as a “science fiction prototype,” which is a fictional story based on research of projected technological and cultural trends.

The Army Cyber Institute’s graphic novel suggests that advanced technology such as doctored videos and artificial intelligence could be weaponized by foreign adversaries in the near future.

“Invisible Force” takes place in the year 2030, when a foreign adversary, in this case the fictional nation of Donovia, uses artificial intelligence to undermine the United Nations’ response to a refugee crisis.
