Join us for a meeting of the Innovation & Technology Council.
 
State of the Internet of Things

Tuesday, Oct. 18
10 - 11:30 a.m.
     
 
  
L.A. Area Chamber  
350 S. Bixel St.
Los Angeles, CA 90017  
 
The Internet of Things (IoT) describes a time when everyday items will be connected to the Internet using things like radio-frequency identification, sensors and wireless technology. The concept was once considered futuristic, but IoT has turned into modern conveniences such as smart TVs and home automation, and has enabled remote health monitoring through devices like specialized pacemakers. With these advances come questions regarding privacy and security. How are our government leaders creating policy to manage and encourage IoT? Is it something the government should be involved in?
 
Join the Council to hear from the California Legislative Technology and Innovation Caucus' Assembly Majority Leader Ian Calderon and Assemblymember Richard Bloom as they discuss policy surrounding IoT in the State of California.
 
The Innovation and Technology Council identifies and engages with business clusters that have economic growth potential - including signature, emerging and innovative industry groups. The Council aims to promote policies that will strengthen these industries, elevate their global reach, drive job creation and regional economic prosperity.
 
All Council meetings are open to Chamber members only. Media and guests are only allowed with prior approval. 

Special Guests:
 

Hon. Ian Calderon
Majority Floor Leader
California State Assembly, District 57


Hon. Richard Bloom
California State Assembly, District 50
