Governance In An Emerging New World: Emerging Technology And The U.S. Economy

Monday, May 6, 2019
Hauck Auditorium, Hoover Institution, Stanford University

Artificial intelligence, advanced manufacturing, and other new technologies appear poised to transform the world economy, and, though the transition may be painful, the United States is well-positioned to take advantage of these new opportunities. Panelists will discuss the impact of changing demographics and advancing technology on the U.S. economy and what the United States can do to manage these changes and seize their potential, including improving the educational system, removing bias in AI, and ensuring a growing, productive population.

The Hoover Institution hosted a public panel discussion "Emerging Technology and the U.S. Economy" on Monday, May 6, 2019 from 4:00pm - 5:15pm PST. The event was livestreamed and can be viewed below.
