Event description

Description

The Public Policy Forum is offering a professional development opportunity for mid-to-high level public servants to better understand disruptive technologies and the way they are challenging policy and governance approaches. Government reactions often lag long behind technological changes; how can governments not only catch up, but reorient their organizations to reliably keep up in the future? It starts with understanding a panoply of powerful technology developments and their broader social and economic impacts.

This series of learning modules, designed for current and prospective government executives, provides a deep dive into a selection of emerging technologies, likely areas of disruption and impact, and an exploration of how governments around the world are reacting - or not - to a quickly shifting technological landscape. For each session, we’ll explore the common threads of information security, privacy, ethics, regulatory implications, sustainability, and data.

Each session begins at 9 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. on its scheduled date.

Session I: The New Biology (Sept. 27, 2019)

  • This session will explore the technologies that are changing the way we interact with biological information and biological systems.

Session II: The New Intelligence (Oct. 18, 2019)

  • This session will explore the technologies and applications arising from artificial intelligence and the big data movement.

Session III: The New Community (Nov. 22, 2019)

  • This session will explore networks, including blockchain technology, and the many ways they are (and soon will be) connecting people and communities.

Session IV: The New Governance (Dec. 6, 2019)

  • Our final session runs longer than the first three and focuses on the themes of 1) actual government pilots implementing disruptive technologies, 2) regulatory responses to disruptive technologies and 3) the government-wide ramifications brought on by disruptive technologies. During this session, the participants will be divided into three groups, each corresponding with one of the three themes. Each group will develop a proposal related to the theme.
