New Directions for Government in the Second Era of the Digital Age
Strategy, policy and action for the Biden-Harris administration
The Blockchain Research Institute , in collaboration with the Washington DC based Chamber of Digital Commerce and other experts have produced a 120-page report on how the Biden-Harris administration could reimagine US technology strategy and policy—and take action to implement it.
The Biden-Harris administration arrives at a unique time in history. The pandemic exposed and exacerbated problems at all levels of government, creating a demand pull for transformation. The advent of the second era of the digital age, with a “trivergence” of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, and blockchain technologies, is creating an innovation push.
This report recommends a series of actions that would position the United States for long-term digital leadership, co-authored by Don Tapscott, Kirsten Sandberg, and Anthony D. Williams, with a foreword by Tony Scott, former US Federal CIO under the Obama-Biden administration.
Below you will find an introductory video featuring Don Tapscott, as well as some convenient links to the full report, executive summary, and press release. You can also register for our NEW DIRECTIONS webinar series, which features experts covering a number of topics outlined in the report.
