Intel and Samsung announced the formation of the National IoT Strategy Dialogue, which the companies say is an initiative to convene like-minded industry partners and organizations to collaboratively develop strategic recommendations for U.S. policy makers on the Internet of Things (IoT).

The initiative, to be managed by the Information Technology Industry Council (ITI), will convene ITI’s member companies as well as other industry stakeholders. The launch of the effort coincides with the new Department of Commerce IoT proceeding and the pending bicameral and bipartisan Developing Innovation and Growing the Internet of Things (DIGIT) Act, which would establish a working group of federal agency leaders to provide recommendations to Congress on how to plan for and encourage the proliferation of the IoT in the U.S.

“The National IoT Strategy Dialogue is consistent with the goals of the pending DIGIT Act and as a co-founder, Intel is pleased to help drive this important technology transformation in the US,” said Doug Davis, senior vice president of IoT at Intel.

The launch of the new IoT initiative “answers the call of a chorus of technology leaders seeking a forum to proactively coordinate and drive industry’s role in this process and help policymakers enable the U.S. to fully realize the vast benefits of IoT for economic and societal good,” the companies said in a statement.
