The opening panel will explore the implications of treating data as a public good. It will touch on the difficulties of measuring the value of data and its effect on social welfare at large, and the implication that this knowledge may have on investments in public data infrastructure. It will also shed light on the pathways through which data may spur innovation, improve public services, foster accountability and enhance government efficiency.
All sessions will feature simultaneous translation in English, French and Spanish.
