It’s time for civic tech, democracy, and collaboration. Next week, we’re embarking to NYC for the 2016 Personal Democracy Forum at NYU Skirball. Hosted by Personal Democracy Media, the annual conference brings together bright minds in the field of technology, politics, community, journalism, and academics for workshops, panels, talks, and more. Over two days, these talks explore the growing intersection between tech and societal building, showing how tech helps bring the future forward.
This year, we’re excited to have plenty of Microsoft team members on board to contribute to the conversation. Here are some guest speakers directly from Microsoft:
- Annmarie Levins, General Manager of Technology & Civic Engagement, Microsoft:
- Community Partnership Models for Civic Tech (moderator)
- Kate Crawford, Principal Researcher, Microsoft Research:
- Know Your Terrorist Credit Score
- Matt Stempeck, Director of Civic Technology, Microsoft New York:
- Introducing the Civic Tech Field Guide
- Civic features: When Platforms Do Public Good (moderator)
