Summary

A conversation on tech and public policy with Chris Yiu, Executive Director of the Technology and Public Policy team at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change.

Show Notes

My guest today is Chris Yiu. Chris is the Executive Director of the Technology and Public Policy team at the Tony Blair Institute for Global Change. 

Chris was previously a general manager at Uber and has held senior roles at a number of public, private and third-sector organisations. His work focuses on improving the dialogue between technology, and those seeking to respond to it with policy and regulation so naturally, this conversation revolves around. 

More specifically, Chris and I discuss:
  •  his decision to leave Uber and go work at the Tony Blair Institute
  • the importance of Progress and his new Progressive Agenda,
  • why the institutions of the 20th century are fundamentally mismatched to the challenges of the 21st century
  • why we should be optimists about government
  • his advice for tech people going into Public Policy
  • the biggest opportunities in Artifical Intelligence
  • his reading habits
...and much, much more.

Chris works on something that's very dear to me: the intersection technology and public policy so I had a ton of fun. I hope you enjoy this conversation as much as I did.
