Modernization is crucial if NY wants to keep up with the times. Governor Hochul's agenda is to expand cutting-edge technology development in the Empire State. There have been commitments and investments to boost our Ai efforts through Empire Ai, alongside an agreement to promote safety and ethical use. From the Green CHIPS legislation, Life Science Initiative, NY CREATES, Charge Safe, Ride Safe” Battery-NY initiative, etc., we are fueling growth of the sustainability, green technology, and energy storage economies in NY.  The Governor’s innovation agenda has catalyzed major public and private investments, transforming New York’s economy and creating good-paying jobs of the future. We will hear from public and private entities partnering to accelerate New York’s transformation into a hub for growth and innovation. How can we progress even faster, more efficiently?
