The declining cost of data collection, storage, and processing coupled with ever-growing sources of digital data are spurring incremental increases in the amount of information available to government, law enforcement, intelligence, health agencies and other agencies.  Big data is transforming the way we govern and live, and the Administration is taking steps to minimize potential risks such as loss of privacy, discrimination, and threats to consumer rights.

The White House has charged government agencies to leverage data to enable transparency, provide security, and foster innovation for the benefit of the American people.

This briefing will look at steps agencies are taking to push the frontiers of data science and assume a leadership role in the Data Age.

 

We’ll explore

  • Agency initiatives that are harnessing data to maximize the impact of citizen services.
  • Methods to insure that proper transparency and oversight are in place for data practices.
  • Policy initiatives to maintain data privacy for the American people.
  • The impact of the Internet of Things on the Big Data revolution.
  • Sources of digital data and their use in driving innovation.
