Washington, D.C. — White House Office of Science and Technology Policy (OSTP) Director Eric Lander and Deputy Director for Science and Society Alondra Nelson recently announced that OSTP is engaging a wide array of stakeholders—in industry, academia, government, civil society, and the general public—in a national endeavor to make sure new and emerging data-driven technologies abide by the enduring values of American democracy.
As a part of this effort, OSTP is co-hosting a series of six public events to promote public education and engagement in areas where data-driven technologies intersect with the lives of Americans. These events will bring together a variety of practitioners, advocates, and federal government officials to offer insights and analysis on the risks, harms, benefits, and policy opportunities of artificial intelligence and other automated technologies.
The Center for American Progress is pleased to co-host the final installment of OSTP’s public events series. Please join the Center for American Progress and the White House OSTP for a virtual discussion on the current and emergent uses of technology in the health care system as well as consumer products related to health. Panelists will discuss the impact of new technologies on health disparities; health care access, delivery, and outcomes; and areas ripe for research and policymaking.
As the concluding event in the “Bill of Rights for an Automated Society” series, the event will feature closing reflections on this critical public conversation and the path forward for protecting rights and promoting equity in emerging technologies.
