Emerging tech lightning talks

Executive Track: Global Partnership (DN)Channel 1Breakout session

Public sector innovation requires that we choose wisely from the fruits of technology, reaping their benefits while avoiding their risks. Digital transformation means balancing tradeoffs to improve services for citizens while protecting their freedoms and rights. The Digital Nations has working groups, some of which are focused on digital identity, data, and greening government.

In this open working session, each working group presents a short “lightning talk” on their area of focus, followed by an open Q&A, as we tackle the most promising—and polarizing—technologies.
