This inaugural conference will bring together cross-sector leaders from across Washington state in a day-long retreat to make connections, build bridges, and expand knowledge - all focused on strengthening the state’s innovation economy. This year, the Public Policy Conference is focused on better understanding the landscape of artificial intelligence and providing a robust conversation about how Washington State can continue to be a leader in this technological advancement. 

Our agenda includes a morning session full of introductory presentations to establish a fundamental understanding of artificial intelligence and what Washington state is already doing in AI. After lunch and a networking break, our conference will resume with a keynote discussion of the relevant policy issues in AI and industry case study perspectives. Finally, our day will conclude with insights from other policy makers and experts into what is necessary to keep Washington competitive in this space.
