Policy
perception that somehow our industry
has become "too big" or socially harmful. This sort of backlash should not be
surprising: our society and workplace
are changing at a rapid pace. This
change creates uneasiness, and tech is
a convenient scapegoat. This meme is
also being opportunistically pushed by
industries being disrupted by tech,
ranging from hotels to labor unions to
legacy content providers.
After consulting with our members,
we have responded in a number of ways.
First, we have emphasized the immense
benefits that technology is bringing to
our society. Artificial intelligence and
3D printing are revolutionizing medical
care. Self-driving cars are poised to
save tens of thousands of lives every year.
New internet platforms have caused an
explosion in creativity, and given independent artists access to a global audience. Uber and Lyft have made sure that
we can always get a car, even at rush hour
in the rain. We are highlighting many of
these innovations in our Lets Go Humans
campaign, which you can see online.
But it is not enough to tout our industry's
accomplishments. We must also move to
address the consequences of tech-driven
disruption. Just as our industry creates
challenges, it also provides answers.
That is why CTA hired its first ever
vice president of U.S. jobs to work with
our members and ensure that American
workers are prepared for a high-skilled,
tech driven economy. Our members
continue to innovate and ensure that,
every year, our products use dramatically
less energy. And in the wake of the
last election, we are proud of our social
media members who have adopted
rigorous transparency rules that will
allow anyone to see the origin and
financial sponsor of political ads.
This month, we will converge at
CES to look into the future and see
what our industry will do next. From
self-driving cars to artificial intelligence, from smart cities to the extraordinary entrepreneurs at Eureka
Park, tech is poised to create opportunity, enhance communication and create a better world. I look forward to
taking that journey together.

he CTA Innovation House, which opened in 2014,
continues to expand CTA's presence on Capitol Hill
and serve as a hub for the technology industry in
Washington. Last year, more than 80 members of Congress
visited the space, and more than 110 events were hosted
at the house including political fundraisers, policy briefings,
staff retreats and legislative fly-ins.
Many CTA member companies held
events at the Innovation House in 2017,
including Amazon, Athena Health,
Bosch, Lyft, Phone2Action, Uber and
Walmart. In addition, CTA members,
including Netflix, Layer3 and Intel,
took advantage of the house by demonstrating their products to a Capitol Hill
audience. Recent events include a
reception honoring former FCC
Chairman Dick Wiley, an AI demonstration by CTA member company

NVIDIA, and a briefing on the future of
short-term rentals in Washington, DC.
The CTA Innovation House remains
a unique venue for educating policymakers
and staff, enabling them to experience CTA
member companies' cutting-edge technology that drives our innovation economy.
