Recent technological innovations are bringing immeasurable improvements to the lives of billions around the globe, but they can also have destructive powers that threaten to overwhelm us.
This nascent program is focused on examining the linkage between new technology and the companies who provide those innovations, and the government that may facilitate those developments but must also oversee these technological developments to further the public interest. The intent is to facilitate the development of new technologies aligned with public purpose and benefit.
