Recording: Robot Xing: Border Operations in the Age of Autonomy, Mar 8, 2019

Imagine a truck approaching a remote border checkpoint. When officers approach, no one is inside – it is completely autonomous. How should the officers respond? Today, you can get beer delivered by self-driving shipping trucks, or catch a ride in a driverless taxi. Tomorrow, autonomous technology will completely transform how goods and people make their way around the world…including across borders. How will the rise of autonomous vehicles impact international trade at the borders? What are the associated threats and opportunities, and what are the necessary changes to address each? “Robot Xing: Border Operations in the Age of Autonomy” convenes a group of federal, state, and business executives to explore trade in an autonomous world.
