Our flagship autumn Seminar Series on International Technology Management in 2023 will examine ways in which new digital technologies, business models, and data governance frameworks are addressing problems and opportunities at the interface between the digital economy and the external world, with special attention to new patterns of competition and cooperation between Asia and the U.S.

Individual sessions will focus on topics such as live commerce, new models of AI governance, the role of digital transformation in addressing climate change, cross-border data sharing in an era of heightened concern for privacy and security, digital platforms for supply chain integration, and AI competition.  Distinguished speakers and panels from industry and government.

The series begins September 2023 and continues weekly until December 2023. Seminars will be held in-person and over Zoom on Tuesdays, 4:30 PM – 5:50 PM.
