The Center for Data Innovation has filed comments with the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA) on its International Internet policy priorities. Many other countries are more preoccupied with protecting against the potential harms of new data-driven technologies rather than accelerating adoption to capture their known benefits. The U.S. government, with NTIA playing a central role, should work towards building an international coalition that can champion policies that will advance adoption and use of these technologies globally. The United States has much to gain by enabling data-driven innovation within its borders, but it stands to benefit even further with the support of other countries sharing data with one another, collaborating to develop and deploy the Internet of Things, and accelerating the development and use of AI.
