The Role of Research and Technology in the Changing Ocean Economy

February 2019 banner

Digital technology is incorporated into nearly every facet of American life; it is integral to commerce, community, healthcare, food systems, transportation, education, media, entertainment, and employment. What emerging technologies are complicating the ability to verify authenticity and integrity in a digital world? And what emerging technologies enable the creation of systems of trust that enforce standards of authenticity, integrity, and security? How can partnerships between government, universities, and companies shape public policy to prioritize authenticity and integrity within systems, and who will be the stewards and custodians of such systems? This workshop explored these questions and broadly examined how emerging digital technologies challenge or enable an ability to establish systems of trust in the United States and throughout the global economy.
