Emerging Technologies: Risks and Opportunities for Liberty

Cato Sponsor eBriefing
Monday, December 17, 2018
3:00 – 3:30PM EST

Featuring Matthew Feeney, Director, Center for Emerging Technologies; moderated by Caleb O. Brown, Director of Multimedia.

From artificial intelligence to driverless cars, new (and unimagined) technologies promise greater prosperity and freedom for individuals and civil society. But there are also potential roadblocks from regulators and concerns from civil libertarians. Join us to learn why getting the rules right now matters a great deal. What are the risks of these new technologies? How will government—from the federal to the local level—handle rapid change?

Matthew Feeney, director of Cato’s newly launched Project on Emerging Technologies, will discuss the topic and answer your questions as he breaks down this exciting field.
