On June 19, 2014, the White House Office of Science and Technology Policy and the Georgetown University McCourt School of Public Policy’s Massive Data Institute will co-host an event entitledImproving Government Performance in the Era of Big Data: Opportunities and Challenges for Federal Agencies. This event will convene key stakeholders and thought leaders from across government, academia, industry, and civil society at Georgetown University to share their individual views and insights.

This event is part of ongoing efforts by the Obama Administration to engage both subject matter experts and the public in a national discussion about the future of data innovation and policy. Drawing from the recent White House working group report, “Big Data: Seizing Opportunities, Preserving Values”, this event will focus on the opportunities and challenges posed by Federal agencies’ use of data, best practices for sharing data within and between agencies and other partners, and measures the government may use to ensure the protection of privacy and civil liberties in a big data environment. It will build on other workshops held by OSTP in collaboration with MITNYU, and UC Berkeley. Learn more about these workshops and the big data review from the White House here.

This event is open to the public, and will include remarks from Counselor to the President John Podesta and U.S. Chief Technology Officer Todd Park.
