Join technology leaders from government and the private sector to discuss Web 2.0, its evolution, global impact, and future at the Smith School’s 10th Annual CIO Forum, featuring keynote speaker Vivek Kundra, federal chief information officer, and keynote speaker Paul de Sa, Chief Strategist, Federal Communications Commission.
The new generation of Web 2.0 technologies, including social networking and online communities, are rapidly transforming the face of business and commerce, affecting how government and public institutions engage with the citizenry, and how healthcare is managed, accessed, and delivered. From peer-to-peer lending, to online product reviews, to political campaigns orchestrated online, to virtual patient communities that allow consumers to manage their own health and well-being, examples of this transformation can be seen in every sector of the economy. The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 allocated significant investments for a techno-centric economy of the future. Businesses and policy-makers need to manage these technologies wisely to leverage their value and avoid pitfalls.
