Government Matters interviews Brian Forde on emerging technologies to watch

brian-forde-gov-matters-sept16Brian Forde, director of digital currency at the MIT Media Lab and former senior advisor for mobile and data innovation at the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy, was interviewed this week by Government Matters TV on the latest emerging trends and tech priorities for agencies during a presidential transition.

In a concise Tech Matters interview, Brian expertly outlined the biggest and latest emerging technologies that are shaping our world and discussed how big companies already using these technologies have met with unexpected results thanks to that same early adoption.

Brain’s expert insights into the common perception that technology is unbiased and here to make the world a better and fairer place, or if it poses a threat and could make some of the biggest gaps in our society wider are highly topical and useful. And all are excellent food for thought whilst we wait for the next president of the United States to be decided.

Keynote Speaker Brian Forde:
