We will have speakers join us at the house from CEA's Innovation Policy Day happening in downtown Austin.  They will be talking about Innovating Policy for the Internet of Things.

The Internet is increasingly the home for communications between sensors and devices that support a variety of applications, across a broad range of industries. This “Internet of Things” operates over unlicensed spectrum such as wifi and there will undoubtedly be a torrent of new technologies across a host of industries, including communications and entertainment, medical, agriculture, energy, transportation, and the Internet of Things of connected devices and machines. Policymakers in Washington – Congress, the Administration, and the FCC – have begun to recognize the critical importance of supporting the growth of Wi-Fi. This panel will explore the cutting edge policy debates that will undoubtedly impact the new technologies ahead.
