We launched the IBM Policy Lab at the World Economic Forum in Davos with a panel event called "Walking the Tech Tightrope: How to Balance Trust with Innovation." Watch the video for more information on why the Policy Lab was built.
Led by co-directors Ryan Hagemann and Jean-Marc Leclerc—two long-standing experts in tech and public policy—IBM Policy Lab convenes leading thinkers in public policy, academia, and technology to develop the concrete, common-sense policy ideas leveraging technology to tackle some of the most pressing issues facing our world. Our approach is grounded in the belief that tech can continue to disrupt and improve civil society while protecting individual privacy.
We collaborate with global thinkers, stakeholders and leaders to collect input and share perspective from the diverse voices that must inform public policy. We produce data-driven studies and research to policy making with specific, common-sense recommendations, and help industry leaders make critical decisions on policies impacting our future.
