Emerging Technologies

Emerging Technologies

Software innovation has fostered the development of a range of cutting-edge technologies that offer great promise to improve lives and help solve intractable problems. BSA seeks to help educate policymakers as they consider public policy issues that these new technologies and their adoption might raise. BSA supports:

  • efforts to modernize government systems, including through the adoption of cloud and analytics, to improve data security and expand the benefits that can be derived from data
  • a streamlined regulatory approach that promotes the development and adoption of cutting-edge technologies and analytics tools associated with emerging technologies, such as the Internet of Things and artificial intelligence.
