Exploring Today's Front-Page Technology Policy Issues
ACM’s US Technology Policy Committee (USTPC) is proud to present “HotTopics,” a bimonthly webinar series dedicated to exploring today’s most relevant and important computing-related technology issues. Every 90-minute HotTopics session will take attendees inside a pressing topic in the headlines, from artificial intelligence to quantum computing, with a focus on its implications for US law and policy. Expert ACM, USTPC, and guest panelists will provide their own insights and engage each other and attendees in extended discussion.

The panel discussion was moderated by USTPC Chair Jim Hendler and included ACM technical experts Doug Jones and Barbara Simons, USTPC Law Subcommittee Chair Andy Grosso, and Brennan Center for Justice advisor Edgardo Cortés for a deep and audience-interactive discussion of voting in America and the technologies at its core.
