Workshop "Governance of New Technologies: Technological Innovations, Market Competition, and Public Policy"
In February 2020, I organized, together with Prof. Dr. Tim Büthe, Dr. Zlatina Georgieva, and Prof. Dr. Hanna Hottenrott, a workshop on the governance of new technologies in the TUM Science and Delivery Center in Raitenhaslach.
Scholars from Asia, Europe, and North America contributed to fruitful, thought-provoking discussions. Participants came from EPFL, Harvard University, the Hertie School of Governance, the Korea Institute of Public Administration, the Max Planck Institute of Innovation and Competition, UC Berkeley, the University of Oxford, and many other highly regarded academic and research institution.
The first day of the workshop was focused on the governance of Artificial Intelligence (AI) while the second day revolved around digital markets, competition law and policy, and innovation. On the third day, we wrapped up with an industry perspective on the governance of AI and the governance of extended reality (i.e. augmented reality, virtual reality, and augmented virtuality). We also heard two thought-provoking keynote speeches from Mark Nitzberg (UC Berkeley Center for Human-Compatible AI) and Helena Malikova (European Commission).
