首先,获得控制的Covid-19流行,努力将国家与新的民族团结感。

But beyond those top priorities, President-elect Joe Biden’s incoming administration has an opportunity to make progress on several key tech-related issues, including equitable broadband access, the long-term impact of AI and automation, and issues of digital privacy and security.

这是西雅图地区的科技公司领导人和其他地方的信息,拜登和副总裁Kamala Harris准备在1月份乘坐。

“It’s going to be a very busy time in the world of public policy,” said Michael Schutzler, the CEO of the华盛顿科技产业协会,在电子邮件中,作为选举结果仍在上周仍然出现。

“双方的联邦和州立法者越来越有兴趣对从数据隐私到自治车辆的所有行业,从面部认可到劳动法,”Schutzler写道。““该国各位政府的税收收入较少,因为大流行已经踩到了消费者经济和小企业。这意味着国家和地方预算需要通过降低支出或徒步税,或者更有可能的两者组合来平衡。“

微软总裁布拉德史密斯概述了公司的职位in a post over the weekend.

“At Microsoft, we believe that Americans share more common ground than many pundits acknowledge, particularly when it comes to technology issues,” Smith wrote. “On many of these matters, there is an opportunity to separate policies from politics so we can make a real difference in people’s lives.”

史密斯指出,大流行突出了数字鸿沟的方式,并要求在全国各地的宽带接入中呼吁新重点。

“今天,太多的农村家庭发现没有宽带服务可用,而太多的贫困城市家庭发现没有经济实惠的宽带服务,”他写道。“一个不容忍数百万美国人的国家没有电不有电力的人不再接受数百万家庭没有宽带。”

Among other issues, Smith cited the need to reform the nation’s approach to data privacy, saying “we continue to live with a national electronic privacy law enacted in the dial-up era of the 1980s, and when it comes to issues such as safeguards for facial recognition, we have no national law at all. We need new laws fit for the future.”

Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates, who has called for stronger national leadership on the pandemic, highlighted他的回答中的一系列额外问题为了选举的结果,突出了诸如“贫困和气候变化”的问题,以及解决家庭不平等和机遇问题。“

Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, who has been a frequent target of President Trump, said on Instagram that the election of Biden and Harris shows that unity, empathy and decency “are not characteristics of a bygone era.”
