There are heartening signs of inputs being taken from domain experts in tech policy formulation
Last year, I wrote about three core considerations that I believe to be essential for good tech sector regulation. In the first place, I pointed out that regulators should identify the real regulatory objectives behind the laws they are rolling out. I then argued that in the context of technology, it is often far more effective to establish regulatory principles rather than trying to write rules that often only apply to a limited implementation of that technology. Finally, I suggested that the government should not be shy to ask for help at the first instance, calling on experts—technologists, economists, policy analysts and other specialists—to assist in the formulation of policies required to govern the sector.
