When Should My Data Become the Government’s Data?

There is more data available in the world now than at any time in history. While this data facilitates almost all human interaction, it is also useful to governments and law enforcement entities, particularly in times of crisis. But how do our laws balance personal privacy with the necessity of government access to data for our security? And how are we updating these laws? This panel will discuss global issues surrounding government access to data and features Congressman Kevin Yoder, the author of the Email Privacy Act, Julia Reda, a Member of the European Parliament for the Pirate Party, and David Snead, General Counsel of cPanel and co-founder of the Internet Infrastructure Coalition.

Weaving Together Tech, Fashion, and Congress

The Internet of Things has connected everything from our watches to our shoes, generating data and improving lives. Smart fabrics, 3D printing and microsensors are some of the technologies being used by designers today. As the tech and fashion worlds forge the future of wearable tech, when and where will Congress insert itself into the conversation? This panel looks at futuristic fashion and explores the policy issues involved. Our panelists include Congressman Darrell Issa, the co-chair of the Internet of Things Caucus, Sandra Lopez the VP of Wearables at Intel and Becca McCharren, a designer at Chromat Garments for a great discussion.

AI & Deep Learning Tech—Are We Ready?

Just as we’re becoming accustomed to an Internet of Things (IoT) way of life from Fitbit counting our steps to asking Alexa to play music, the more complex world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Deep Learning machines is here and growing. Policy implications abound for both innovators and the government from safety and security to AI’s impact on the future workforce. This panel will examine the policy challenges of AI with Congresswoman Suzan Delbene (D-WA), a key leader on tech policy on Capitol Hill, Rohit Prasad, Amazon’s Alexa Machine Learning specialist and Terah Lyons, a former White House Office of Science and Technology Policy advisor on Artificial Intelligence.

Speakers

 

Fintech, Public Policy, and a Consumer Driven World

FinTech is transforming the financial services industry as small companies become household names. Wall Street Institutions need to be nimble in order to succeed, looking for the right investment partnerships with the next new technology. Is the regulatory landscape for the big enabling the small? Government needs to promote this rapid pace of innovation. Luckily some of the best minds in the industry are working on transforming the industry, thinking about “fintegration”. This panel features Congressman Patrick McHenry, a member of the Financial Service Committee, Heather Cox with CitiGroup and Tom Gannon with MasterCard to discuss.

Follow the Minerals: Conflict Minerals in Tech

In the last few years, tech companies have grappled with the fact that many of their most popular products are powered by components that are derived mainly in the Democratic Republic of Congo, funding a vicious civil war. The use of these “conflict minerals” has raised many questions about corporate responsibility and required companies to do an internal gut check to decide how to address the issue. What’s more, recent federal legislation mandates certain disclosures on the use of conflict minerals in products or in materials used in manufacturing processes. How has the tech world responded to calls to create conflict-free products and what impact has it had?

Design Philosophy

The best designs in the world are based on purpose and function. When a design solves a functional problem as simply and elegantly as possible, the resulting form will be honest and timeless.

Consider the umbrella, the violin, and the canoe. Their exceptionally pure and elegant forms are the result of performance-centric designs that have stood the test of time.   Read more

Design is not just what it looks like

Ullamco laboris nisi ut aliquid ex ea commodi consequat. Sed haec quis possit intrepidus aestimare tellus. Nec dubitamus multa iter quae et nos invenerat. Non equidem invideo, miror magis posuere velit aliquet. Quam temere in vitiis, legem sancimus haerentia. Tu quoque, Brute, fili mi, nihil timor populi, nihil.

Tu quoque, Brute, fili mi, nihil timor populi, nihil! Petierunt uti sibi concilium totius Galliae in diem certam indicere. Me non paenitet nullum festiviorem excogitasse ad hoc. Cras mattis iudicium purus sit amet fermentum. Salutantibus vitae elit libero, a pharetra augue. Fictum, deserunt mollit anim laborum astutumque.

Unam incolunt Belgae, aliam Aquitani, tertiam. Pellentesque habitant morbi tristique senectus et netus. Qui ipsorum lingua Celtae, nostra Galli appellantur. Quo usque tandem abutere, Catilina, patientia nostra? Praeterea iter est quasdam res quas ex communi. Ambitioni dedisse scripsisse iudicaretur.
