Description:

We’ve grown skeptical of platforms, software, and technology that collect our personal data. Over the years, our trust has been broken many times over, and our data has been used to fuel the fire of misinformation, undermine democracy, and disrupt daily life. 

What doesn’t make headlines is how data, when used for good, can empower citizens and support communities.

In this panel, we’ll hear from industry experts about the expectations vs reality of big data. We’ll learn more about data activism, where the movement is headed with the arrival of 5G and Massive IoT data collection, and how communities and governments can assemble to protect our personal information, leveraging it for greater good.

When harnessed responsibly, data has the power to spur civic engagement and transform communities, but first it needs to become open and accessible to all. Our panelists will cover the role data will play in the upcoming election, and the responsibility that corporations and government must adhere to when collecting it.

Tune in to learn more about the future of data collection and usage, how it can empower communities, and find out how you can get involved to support data for good.
