Mobile technology has transformed nearly every aspect of modern life, most notably in the areas of health care delivery, education, global economics, e-commerce, entertainment and personal communications. To further these revolutionary changes, how can the nation create a climate for investment that allows mobile innovation to thrive? What are the policy issues that need to be addressed to foster continued advancement in the area of mobile technology?

On June 12, the Center for Technology Innovation at Brookings hosted a forum focused on the future of mobile technology and how the public and private sectors can boost mobile technology’s growth and success in the U.S. and global marketplaces. Moderated by Director Darrell West, Randall Stephenson, chairman and CEO of AT&T, and Glenn Hutchins, co-founder of Silver Lake and vice chairman of the Brookings Board of Trustees, offered their perspectives on what is required to continue mobile technology’s revolutionary impact.

After the program, speakers took audience questions.
