Federal, state, and local governments pour billions into information and communication technologies (ICT). Some $40 billion of federal money addresses research needs into digital medicine, energy, and “pure” ICT research. State and local governments add at least $15 billion more, along with untold soft support like tax breaks. Electric vehicles and autonomous driving systems highlight how nations, states, and cities are using ICT investments to reach environmental and economic goals.
