Good morning Chairwoman Stevens. I’d like to thank you for convening today’s hearing and for inviting me to visit Michigan’s 11th District. It’s great to be here.
I look forward to hearing from our witnesses this morning about how communities can, and are, using smart technologies to provide safe and efficient mobility solutions.
All of us on this Committee are aware of the challenges our nation is facing with aging infrastructure.
Today, the House of Representatives considered and passed Chairwoman Eddie Bernice Johnson’s (D-TX) legislation H.R. 2528, the STEM Opportunities Act under suspension of the rules. This bill addresses the underrepresentation of women and racial and ethnic minority groups in research careers at institutions of higher education and at Federal laboratories.
Good Afternoon and thank you, Chairwoman Sherrill, for convening this important hearing.
We are here today to explore technologies that enable online disinformation. We’ll look at trends and emerging technology in this field, and consider research strategies that can help to detect and combat sophisticated deceptions and so-called “deepfakes.”
Disinformation is not new. It has been used throughout history to influence and mislead people.
