Susan Crawford: Fiber: The Coming Tech Revolution--And Why America Might Miss It — in conversation with Adam Liptak — at Politics and Prose at The Wharf

Upcoming Event
Wednesday, January 30, 2019 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

Based on a powerful new fiber-optic infrastructure, the world of 5G marks as profound a change in the way we work, communicate, and live as the advent of electricity did decades ago. Able to stream unprecedented amounts of data, this imminent information revolution will change the way we think about nearly everything we do, from health care to urban administration to agriculture. The one dark spot in this bright future is the growing monopoly a few huge corporations have over cable and internet access. Drawing on her expertise as a Harvard Law school professor and a special assistant to the president for science, technology, and innovation policy in 2009, Crawford reports on the extraordinary promise of 5G and on the initiatives many local governments are undertaking to ensure the field is open to competition and that innovation is not held back by entrenched corporate interests. Crawford will be in conversation with Adam Liptak, Supreme Court reporter for The New York Times.
