Government Modernization in New York
The pandemic has exposed serious shortcomings regarding our antiquated systems but also our abilities to be inspired through a rapid call to action from tech and government leaders, advocacy groups, healthcare workers, entrepreneurs and engineers. Whether by helping our hospitals, schools, small businesses, or our most vulnerable communities, New York’s tech sector has been at the forefront of the city’s response. We know it's time to take modernization more seriously and in a faster manner. How can we get things to progress faster and more efficiently? This session discusses where to focus, what to prioritize, and how to proceed.
Navigating Threats to Cyber and Physical Infrastructure
Even with the latest innovations in place, the infrastructure and technology used to keep New Yorkers safe, healthy, moving and connected are never invincible as we have seen in this pandemic. Our panelists will discuss how government agencies are balancing digital vs. analog, expanding broadband access, implementing 5G networks, protecting net neutrality, modernizing transportation technology and how the public and private sector can work together to build resilient infrastructure and public safety services in the face of a second wave or a similar emergency situation.
Biggest Tech Developments in New York
This panel will discuss innovative and current tech developments that are changing the way NY'ers live and do business. Conversations about cryptocurrency’s influence, the pledge to connect 1.6 million web users by 2024 and the ways to further broadband access, digital equity in the schools, extending the use of AI in government, and navigating up and coming industries to continue to make NY a world leading tech hub. Panelists will also discuss ways to introduce diverse new talent into the workforce, laying a foundation for inclusive growth, capital programs and initiatives, and blockchain strategy.
Using Technology to Impact our Communities
Technologies are driving high-impact interventions for communities to make them safer, smarter, healthier and to increase their economic re-development. Community, tech and public health leaders are working on meeting pressing needs of New Yorker's that are affordable and inclusive. At this round table we discuss ways we can use technology to impact our communities and help re-develop our economy by working hand in e-hand.
