Pressure to Regulate
The IIC is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, and the theme of its annual conference is that our industry is at a tipping point. We see accelerating technological change, as new services exploit advances in both connectivity and data science.
This is transforming the communications sector – changing how we talk to each other, how we understand what is happening in the world, how we entertain ourselves. And it is driving change in a number of other industries which depend on smart connectivity, from industrial automation to telemedicine.
Policymakers are naturally keen to ask what they can do to maximise the benefits associated with this innovation. And, because one of the main levers available to policymakers is regulation, that often takes us into a policy debate about how new technologies should be regulated.
