Other federal officials scheduled to discuss tech policy at CES 2024 include:

These speakers join more than 160 international, federal, state and local government officials and staff who will participate in the Leaders in Technology Program and attend the Innovation Policy Summit (IPS) at CES, which convenes top innovators and policymakers to discuss the future of policy around a range of pressing technology issues, including privacy, health innovation, trade policy, competition, artificial intelligence, self-driving vehicles, and more.  

As CES 2024 is a major international event with over a third of participants coming from outside the United States and more than 150 countries represented, international policy will again be a point of significant focus. This includes the return of Human Security For All (HS4A), a global campaign led by the United Nations Trust Fund for Human Security and the World Academy of Art and Science. One session at this year’s HS4A programming will feature Amandeep Singh Gill, the UN Secretary General’s Envoy.
