Cities around the world are using data to improve the lives of residents. To responsibly integrate data and technology into building neighbourhoods, it is necessary to meaningfully bring together areas of expertise like human-centred design, digital policy, data governance, AI ethics, urban planning, and engineering. Sidewalk Labs was founded by former public servants to work on addressing these challenges.

In this keynote, Jacqueline Lu, a long-time leader in civic tech and data-driven innovation, will share her past experiences standing up a Data Analytics team in New York City government, and how this experience has enabled her to drive novel approaches to the integration of digital innovation and urban development at Sidewalk Labs in her hometown of Toronto.
