Emerging Technologies

Supporting the federal government's response to new technologies, through policy and best practices.

What We Do

  • Discover New Technologies
    We monitor new and emerging technology, adding daily to the more than 1,000 technologies currently identified. The result is a balanced portfolio of near- and long-term emerging technologies from every category of IT.
  • Analyze and Advise
    New technology can improve the way we work and interact with the public. We assess potential impacts of new technologies on the federal government and recommend policy to support response and adoption.
