Technology has led America’s economy to surge in directions we couldn’t have imagined even a few years ago. The pace will only accelerate as innovations such as drones, driverless cars, artificial intelligence and the near instantaneous access to information settle in as part of our daily lives. Technology, and the powerful devices we use to access it, represent unprecedented opportunities for how Americans will interact, collaborate, communicate, invest, work, relax, travel and even receive medical care.
Yet with its breathtaking promise, current and upcoming trends in high tech remain largely uncharted waters. As technological advances further, it is paramount that government allow the marketplace to innovate without needless regulations or playing favorites to existing industries or emerging technologies. CASE is further committed to ensuring that the technology boom does not leave more Americans vulnerable to attacks on our safety, security, privacy or property. By balancing the freedom to innovate with consumer safeguards, technology will have near limitless potential to drive both our economy and create a better way of life for all.
