New & Emerging Technology

The New & Emerging Technologies (NET) portfolio is an evolving one, as new technology emerges. Currently, the portfolio focuses on data (open, big, analytics), cloud computing, Internet of Things (IoT), smart communities, artificial intelligence, automation, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), blockchain technology, and quantum computing. By bringing together technologists from the private sector, the government and academia, CompTIA can directly address the policy challenges that arise as these technologies increasingly impact our economy and national security.

The CompTIA Federal and State Emerging Technologies Committee supports new and emerging technology platforms through impactful policies creating an advantageous policy environment that allows emerging technology platforms to mature at both the Federal and State level. We focus our advocacy efforts on promoting the adoption of digital technology to help create smart cities, remove barriers to ensure greater Internet of Things (IoT) growth, and enabling an environment for digital infrastructure.
