Our society uses data for many reasons that affect how we make decisions. Data can be used to improve government decision making, inform business decisions, or spur innovation. GovDATAx will focus on the different ways we use data and the supporting government initiatives: data for analysis, for transparency, for accountability, for enforcement, and for civic engagement.
GovDATAx will unite the diverse members of the data community to increasingly work together and collaborate on the strategies for unleashing data for the public good. Our summit offers a unique opportunity to discuss policies for making high-quality government data more accessible and useful. As the country’s premier event about government data policy, it will bridge the traditional organizational and disciplinary silos across the data community to focus on shared goals of producing government data that can be responsibly used to improve society.
