The TPI Aspen Forum event gathers leaders from business, government and academia to discuss and debate key public policy issues affecting innovation, technology, and communications.
Since 2010, more than 850 policymakers and thought leaders have convened at the St. Regis resort for provocative discussions and riveting keynotes on topics including U.S. competitiveness and innovation, broadband penetration, and entertainment distribution models, to name a few. Each year’s agenda touches on timely themes and pertinent issues driving public policy and regulatory decisions and how they may affect tech, communications and content industries. The depth of discussions, featuring both industry leaders and academic experts, makes the event a unique experience.
The new administration and Congress are reconsidering longstanding regulatory, tax, and international policies, among others, with potentially far-reaching consequences. These potential policy shifts could affect the landscape for the technology and communications sectors as well as the broader U.S. and global business environment. How will these changes influence emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence and investment in new communications networks like 5G? More broadly, what will be the effect on innovation and economic growth?
Panels and speakers will discuss these and other related issues at the Technology Policy Institute’s Aspen Forum.
