New Directions in Technology Policy: Removing Barriers to Growth and Innovation

August 20-22, 2017

REGISTRATION NOW OPEN

The new administration and Congress are reconsidering longstanding regulatory, tax, and international policies, among others, with potentially far-reaching consequences. These policy shifts could affect the landscape for the technology and communications sectors as well as the broader U.S. and global business environment. How will these changes influence emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and investment in new communications networks like 5G? More broadly, what will be the effect on innovation and economic growth?

Panels and speakers will discuss these and related issues at the Technology Policy Institute’s Aspen Forum.

Details on speakers and the conference agenda will be available soon. For additional information, please contact Jane Creel at jcreel@techpolicyinstitute.org. Members of the press can contact Amy Smorodin at asmorodin@techpolicyinstitute.org.

Coming soon. 

Panel Discussions planned for the TPI Aspen Forum include:

AI and Automation: A Jobless Future?

The Internet of Things: Connecting It and Protecting It

ICT Consolidation: Business Imperatives and Policy Responses

Who Is In Charge of the Internet? The Role of International Institutions

Terminally Unconnected: Will We Ever Get Everyone Online?

Off-the-record working group topics are:
