tech at work
September 28, 2018
This week, TechNet was on Capitol Hill highlighting the importance of STEM education by joining Dell Technologies, MATHCOUNTS, and others in presenting "Are You Smarter Than A Mathlete?," where tech leaders were paired with middle school mathletes for a quiz-bowl style competition. See below for some highlights.
Also below are several compelling news items from the innovation economy, including how tech companies are working to prevent malicious drone attacks before they happen, assisting humanitarian organizations with artificial intelligence solutions, and helping low-income communities get access to affordable advanced energy for their homes.
On Wednesday, we announced the hiring of David London as our new Vice President of State Policy and Politics. With many tech policy debates taking place in state capitals across the country, his hiring is key for shaping the future of the U.S. innovation economy and its ability to expand economic opportunities and develop life-enhancing technologies.
