From presidential candidates to state attorneys general, the calls to rein in "big tech" have grown more pronounced. The last decade saw the meteoric rise of social media and tech platforms on mobile and on the Internet. Once the darlings of the new economy at the start of the decade, many big tech companies are now witnessing unprecedented scrutiny about their size. Critics are now calling for stricter competition policies, more data privacy rules, more accountability, and requirements for interoperability and portability among other solutions. Our panel will look at what big tech faces at the start of the '20s and what the next decade may bring for them.
