Tech, Techlash, and Regulatory Uncertainty

September 17, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm

Tech, Techlash, and Regulatory Uncertainty

New technologies and how they challenge regulators, compliance officers, and the courts.  As entrepreneurs hustle to create and deploy new technologies those very same technologies create enormous difficulties for public policy.  A look at blockchain, privacy, and artificial intelligence as examples of how the State of Washington has struggled to find an appropriate balance between the common good and consumer protection.
