Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) technology is already becoming a powerful presence in large enterprises and federal agencies, and even in smaller-scale operations, like a growing number of libraries and inventory-intensive small businesses. These small RFID "tags" allow the identification and tracking of physical items using radio waves, and have far reaching implications for processes as wide-ranging as factories, hospitals, airports, battlefields and retails stores.
The Congressional Internet Caucus Advisory Committee has established the RFID Roundtable among experts steeped in RFID technology and policy. As with all of our events, the goal of the RFID Roundtable is to assure informed decision making. By all accounts RFID technology holds tremendous promise.
