A recap and recording of this event can be viewed here.


Emerging new technologies now being widely and rapidly deployed need new policies and business models that increase the value of the data they generate while also preserving privacy and security.

Internet of things (IoT) devices, digital assistants, ubiquitous sensors, and augmented/virtual reality (AR/VR) environments need regulation and markets at the same time.  How do we manage tradeoffs and risk tolerance?  How can academic research and policy interventions contribute to optimal outcomes in this space?

Join CLTC in conversation with Mary Fan, Henry M. Jackson Professor of Law at the University of Washington, and Karen Levy, Assistant Professor in the Department of Information Science at Cornell University, who are at the forefront of thinking about these issues. They will share new work that examines the tensions and trade-offs at the intersection of AI, competition and antitrust policy, and security and privacy – and discuss what this means for policy debates as the Biden administration takes up the most significant re-think since the mid 1990s of how the digital economy should be regulated. This discussion will be moderated by Tejas Narechania, Robert and Nanci Corson Assistant Professor of Law at the UC Berkeley School of Law and Faculty Director of the Berkeley Center for Law & Technology.
