About Rebellion Defence

In an era where commercial technology continues to redefine the art of the possible, the advent of artificial intelligence and machine learning has yet to take full force in advancing how we understand, decide and act in the realm of national security. Rebellion Defence’s three founders, whose careers span the tech industry, public policy, and national defence, are driven by this urgency. Defending our democratic values around the world against those seeking to undermine our freedoms requires cutting-edge software. It requires a shared responsibility between the smartest minds in technology and national security. It requires a rebellion. For more information visit
