Berit Anderson

CEO & Editor in Chief, Scout.ai

Berit Anderson is the CEO and editor-in-chief of Scout.ai, which explores the near-term implications of technology by combining analysis and near-term science fiction. Her investigative reporting on information warfare in the 2016 US presidential election provided the first blueprint for how the Trump campaign and Russia used technology to undermine the democratic process in the US and, in Russia's case, across Europe. In 2017, she traveled to the Brussels Forum to debate the former prime minister of Sweden about whether the internet is a force for democracy. 

Before founding Scout.ai, Berit was the managing editor at Crosscut.com, a civic news site in Seattle, where she reinvented community journalism to help solve local problems and staged scenario-planning games to help the city plan for cyber-attacks and deal with climate refugees. She has worked closely with Strategic News Service (SNS), a predictive newsletter read by Bill Gates, Elon Musk, and Jeff Bezos, as well as the SNS FiRe conference, which brings together C-level technology executives, world-class scientists, and Oscar-winning documentary filmmakers to discuss how science and technology are reshaping our world.
