Technology

The next decade will see tremendous disruption from technology that will reshape and transform society. If managed properly, the nature of these changes can greatly improve standards of living, promote inclusivity, and create a more stable world order. However, managed poorly, they can promote inequity, instability, and crisis 

The public is already seeing the effects of AI and other technology. Policy needs to adapt, and a series of questions should be addressedWhat should be done to ensure AI promotes fairness and inclusionHow can the regulatory system evolve, while not stifling responsibly innovationWhat can be done to protect privacy and securityCan AI accelerate innovation and growth? What will the workforce of the future look like? How does the United States remain competitive and lead the world in AI 

The future is unknowable, but it will be shaped by the decisions made today. The BPC Technology project will help inform these decisions in a thoughtfulbipartisan, and timely manner.

    BPC’s technology project produced an interactive map to illustrate the data privacy landscape at the state level. We have also listed privacy legislation introduced at a national level that will ensure the highest level of consumer protection and business practice. BPC will regularly update this map and share educational materials about the ongoing data privacy debate.
