Two of the most effective efforts to tackle the emerging technology challenges were the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence and the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.
Emerging technology develops at a pace that is hard to master, much less legislate. But the government is obliged to ensure that we maximize the opportunities technology provides to improve societal conditions, and both economic and national security; while also ensuring new technologies do not do irreparable damage to any of these. Two of the most effective efforts to tackle the emerging technology challenges in the past half-decade were the National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence, and the Cyberspace Solarium Commission.
As the former chairs of the congressionally mandated Cyberspace Solarium Commission (CSC) and National Security Commission on Artificial Intelligence (NSCAI), Rep. Mike Gallagher and Dr. Eric Schmidt will discuss the roles of Congress, the Executive Branch, academia, and private sector leaders in shaping emerging technology policy, including how commissions can influence policies moving forward.
The panel will be moderated by the former NSCAI Executive Director and current President and CEO of the Special Competitive Studies Project Ylli Bajraktari, and the former CSC Executive Director and current Senior Director of FDD’s Center on Cyber and Technology Innovation and CSC 2.0 Executive Director RADM (Ret.) Mark Montgomery.
The event is hosted by the Foundation for Defense of Democracies, the Special Competitive Studies Project, and CSC 2.0.
