Creating Tomorrow: Digitization of Retail and Consumer Products - How the Pandemic Will Accelerate Change

November 12, 2020 • Webinar

Starts: 12:00 PM (EST)
Ends: 1:00 PM (EST)

CPSC Commissioner Peter Feldman Discusses the Use of Digital Technology in Regulating the Distribution of Consumer Products

Join us for a look beyond the pandemic to explore how digitization and technology are changing the retail and consumer products industries. In this moderated discussion, Commissioner Peter A. Feldman will explore digitization at the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission. Topics we will discuss include:
  • The surveillance of e-commerce through the mail – as e-commerce enters the country from outside its borders, and direct-to-consumer sales increase, how will regulators ensure products coming into the US are safe? 
  • The use of AI at the CPSC to predict emerging trends and hazards and to inform engineering analysis – how best to leverage these technologies to have agency decision making based on science and data.
  • The use of AI in actual products – hacking and safety concerns.
  • Predictions on CPSC direction post-election.
