Winning the Frontier: U.S.-Japan Cooperation on Global Standards for Emerging Technologies, from AI to 5G

February 13, 2018 • 9:00 – 10:30 am EST
Please join the Simon Chair in Political Economy for an event on February 13, 2018, at 9:00am on the importance of cooperation on international standards in emerging technologies. As developments in artificial intelligence (AI), fifth generation (5G) mobile networks, big data, and autonomous vehicles become key drivers in the global economy, shaping the international dialogue on standards around new technologies has become essential to commercial and strategic interests. As technological leaders, the U.S. and Japan are well positioned to lead this effort and to ensure that fair, transparent, and efficient standards are put in place that will encourage continued innovation and efficiency, consumer welfare, and security. 

Featuring an expert panel, this event seeks to explore some of the key technologies where this debate is already underway, the actors involved in this space, and the competition to shape the emerging technological landscape. 

This event is made possible with the generous support of the Embassy of Japan.
