Professor Beth Simone Noveck, former Deputy Chief Technology Officer of the United States and author of “Smart Citizens, Smarter State”, will join our LinkedIn Speaker Series to discuss “The Tech Presidency: Governing in the Age of Big Data and Machine Learning”.
Trust in government is at an all-time low. Re-designing and improving the way we govern will have to be a key a priority for any new president. The White House has been at the forefront of a global movement to open up and use the data government collects to transform everything from healthcare to criminal justice. So-called open government data is empowering citizens, creating economic opportunity and helping to solve problems in creative ways. But can open data transform government? Can data-driven technologies make government more effective and legitimate or will they only deprive us of our privacy and civil liberties? With the election around the corner, we will take stock of what we have accomplished and what remains to be done to realize a new vision for government using new technology.
