John Collins (BA 07, MPA 09) delivers the first talk in the IPA Technology and
Public Policy Speaker Series. Collins presentation, The
Decentralization of Everything: The Emerging Policy Landscape of
Bitcoin, oriented the audience to digital currencies, covering
everything from Bitcoin mining operations in China and the enigmatic
developers of protocols like Bitcoin and Ethereum to the boardrooms of
digital wallet companies that seek to make using currencies like Bitcoin
convenient and safe.
How can emerging technologies be integrated with public infrastructure and services?
How can governments balance data collection and information sharing with privacy concerns?
How might technological changes influence employment opportunities?
The Institute for Public Administration (IPA) conducts policy research, develops policy guides, and convenes public conversations to help governments, businesses, and communities understand and plan for the impacts and opportunities of emerging technologies. The technology and public policy work of IPAs faculty, staff, and students addresses topic areas including transportation policy, local government management, planning, and economic development.
Recent efforts include studying the public policy implications of self-driving cars, managing efforts to analyze issues and opportunities related to broadband infrastructure and services in Delaware, and researching workforce implications associated with cybersecurity demands.
