Digital privacy, disinformation campaigns, drones, AI, and antitrust are only a few of the pressing technology policy issues of our time. Lately, there's been a lot of talk on social media in Washington. We wanted to ask a group of experts what level of knowledge on any issue, especially on technology, is required for Members of Congress and policymakers in Washington to make sound decisions in the best interests of their constituents. What types of access to information do they need? Can we put forth a formula for sound decision-making on Internet policy issues?
