Fostering the Advancement of the Internet of Things Workshop
National Telecommunications and Information Administration
September 1, 2016
9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Eastern Daylight Time
As part of the Department’s Digital Economy Agenda, the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) initiated an inquiry regarding the Internet of Things (IoT) to review the current technological and policy landscape, which included a Request for Comment on ‘‘The Benefits, Challenges, and Potential Roles for the Government in Fostering the Advancement of the Internet of Things.’’
This workshop will build on the comments received in the Request for Comment, focusing specifically on the potential benefits and challenges of these technologies and what role, if any, the U.S. Government should play in this area. This workshop will help to inform the Department’s forthcoming issue-spotting, agenda-setting green paper on IoT.
NTIA will post a detailed agenda on its Web site, www.ntia.doc.gov/ category/internet-things, prior to the meeting.
