The Office of Technology (OT) assists the Commission by: (1) strengthening and supporting law enforcement investigations and actions; (2) advising and engaging with FTC staff and the Commission on policy and research initiatives; and (3) engaging with the public and relevant experts to understand trends and to advance the Commission’s work.
OT technologists have deep expertise across a range of specialized fields. This includes practitioners and subject matter experts across security and software engineering, data science, artificial intelligence, machine learning, human-computer interaction design, and social science research relating to technology.
