Mad Scientists Initiative
The Mad Scientist Initiative by U.S. Army Training and Doctrine Command (TRADOC) explores the future through collaboration and partnerships with academia, industry and government. It seeks to uncover emerging and disruptive technologies and ideas by engaging outsiders and unconventional sources, bringing insights from the global marketplace of ideas into the Army through a credible, fair, and transparent process.
