SINET's annual ITSEF conference was held last Wednesday and Thursday. It included expert reflection on emerging technologies and the challenges and opportunities they present. Speakers also offered reflections on the appropriate scope for collaboration among governments and industry: more sharing and inspiration, more cross-fertilization through intersecting career paths, and less rush to regulations that tend to both overreaction and technological lag. You'll find some detailed accounts of the conference in our event coverage. Expect more tomorrow.
