Advancing Innovation: Technology Leading the Way


Technology has become a lifeline for people across the world − transforming our day-to-day and driving innovation at an unprecedented rate. America must leverage emerging technologies in order to remain a global innovation leader. From investing in digital research and trade to ensuring our nation’s commitment to innovation through policy − the foundation of U.S. competitiveness is rooted in technology and its advancement.

As the next administration comes into office, how can they leverage this moment of opportunity? How do we ensure policy decisions are informed by the technology of the future and not just driven by inertia from an analog past? And what must the U.S. do to invest in our innovation ecosystem to remain a global leader as other nations make deep investments in their own?

The Hill's Steve Clemons sits down with leading tech voices, innovators and policymakers to discuss what is just around the corner for innovation in America.
