Capitol Hill remains quiet this week as both the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate enter a second straight week of work periods. Technology and innovation events continue, however, at the many policy think tanks residing in Washington, D.C. Monday starts with a discussion on U.S.-China relations at the Brookings Institution, while a pair of events at the Cato Institute look at whether human ingenuity can improve resource availability in the face of a growing world population and the effects of artificial intelligence (AI) on the future of work. In the middle of the week, the Center for Strategic and International Studies hosts two events exploring threats to the government’s software supply chain, as well as counterspace threats faced by the U.S. The week wraps up on Friday with a Consortium for Science, Policy and Outcomes event that explores the positive effect that creative play can have on business innovation.
