The rapid evolution of the Internet into advanced mobile networks and now extended to the Internet of Things has made policymaking a challenge to say the least. Long gone are the days when you would hear a regulator or a lawmaker make a folksy quip about his lack of technology savvy. In fact, many agencies and departments are actively enhancing their technical acumen by recruiting technologists who can help in the policymaking process. Our panel will feature the top technologists from a range of agencies and departments. Can these folks help the government keep pace?
