On November 15, 2019, the Gray Center hosted a public policy conference on “Technology, Innovation, and Regulation.” For this conference, scholars wrote and presented papers on the way regulation affects technological innovation, and vice-versa. The Gray Center convened expert panels on topics including whether social media should be regulated for “neutrality,” “regulatory sandboxes” and other laboratories of democracy, artificial intelligence and the future of regulation, and disruptive technology and the future of “law,” during which the new research was discussed. Keynote remarks were given by Kate Lauer, an Advisor for Jiko and former Head of Global Regulatory Strategy for PayPal.

The third panel examined artificial intelligence and the future of regulation and focused on a paper on “Algorithmic Accountability in the Administrative State,” which was co-authored by panelist David Freeman Engstrom of Stanford Law School, and David Ho of Stanford University. The panel also featured Melissa Netram of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission and New York University School of Law’s Catherine M. Sharkey. The discussion was moderated by the Gray Center’s Executive Director, Adam White. The paper and videos are available at: https://administrativestate.gmu.edu/events/technology-innovation-and-regulation/.

Featuring David Freeman Engstrom, Melissa Netram, Catherine Sharkey, and Adam White.
