Public attention is increasingly focused on the role "Big Digital Tech Companies" play in U.S. democratic society and globally – raising issues on topics such as monopoly power, data privacy, and security. M-RCBG is holding a series of three study groups this fall on issues of Technology and Regulation, specifically "Can Society Control Big Tech?"
This month's study group features guest speaker (via Zoom) Mark MacCarthy, Senior Fellow at the Institute for Technology Law and Policy at Georgetown Law and a Senior Policy Fellow at the Center for Business and Public Policy at Georgetown’s McDonough School of Business.
Dr. MacCarthy will survey "The Regulation of Digital Industries" being proposed in the U.S. and around the world. Dr. MacCarthy is affiliated with The Brookings Institution, Georgetown University's graduate school, and Georgetown University's law school. He is a prolific commentator on a broad range of technology issues, including privacy and AI ethics. His career has encompassed government service in the Congress and senior executive positions at Visa, Capital Cities/ABC, and the Software & Information Industry Association.
This is an in-person event for HUID holders.
The final study group in this series will take place on December 7.
