Can Congress Tackle the Internet of Things?

The Internet of Things (IoT) is generating a significant interest among consumers, the private sector and policymakers due to the potential monumental impacts it can have on innovation. This panel will bring together unique perspectives on how IoT is shaping the innovation policy debate in Washington. Congressman Issa has been a champion on this issue, creating the IoT Caucus, and knows that we need to take a hard look at the impact on innovation. Additionally, the panel will include representatives from the NFL and Accenture, who are developing great new technologies to solve real world problems, like keeping players safe on the field and helping driver-less cars get on the road.
