There is new energy and momentum to legislate on technology issues—particularly when it comes to privacy, competition, and artificial intelligence. Many states and even some cities have enacted or are considering net-neutrality and privacy regulations, while for its part, Congress is considering a range of possible actions on technology. But what problems should policymakers address, and how should they address them?
AAF convenes two panels, the first on privacy and the second on the important threads between competition policy and AI, to discuss these important issues.
