POSTPONED - CITP Conference: Big Tech: New Policy Environment
Department:Center for Information Technology Policy
Audience:Open to the Public, Registration Required
This conference has been postponed, the new date is to be determined.
The reach of today’s technologies, and their impact on public life, have intensified debates about the role of technology companies. Companies increasingly find themselves in positions where they have to make judgements that impact large populations. Some commentators argue in favor of more regulatory oversight, while others suggest a more precautionary approach to protect innovation and economic progress. This one day interdisciplinary conference features a range of discussions in the area of competition and open Internet, consumer privacy, online abuse and harassment and the current discussions around technology companies and political campaigns.
