Project on Emerging Technologies

The Cato Institute’s Project on Emerging Technologies advances a unique and optimistic vision of emerging technology consistent with the principles of individual liberty, limited government, free markets, and peace. The project seeks to propose policies consistent with that vision, which if implemented would improve human wellbeing by allowing entrepreneurs, researchers, and government officials to harness new and emerging technologies such as autonomous vehicles, Artificial Intelligence, 3D printing, drones, and many others. While the project advances an optimistic vision it also highlights some of the risks associated with emerging technologies such as erosions of civil liberties and threats to public safety.
