Public Interest Technology is a new field of interest that introduces big data, inclusive community input, and design thinking to some of the most complex public problems of our day. Thought leaders from New America and Virginia Tech are already in the field, working with communities to identify their most pressing issues and to devise technological solutions thereto. Join us for a fascinating and inspiring discussion of the thought, process, platforms, and actions constituting public interest technology and its possible application in our most under-resourced communities.
We need public interest technologists. People who sit at the intersection of big data and inclusive community input. People who want to use their tech and data expertise to promote the common good. Enter, stage left, Public Interest Technology. Thought leaders from New America and Virginia Tech are already framing the field and beginning to understand its power to create change for our most under-resourced communities.

Please join us on September 27 at 11:30 for a virtual discussion with two of the country’s leading experts.
