Imagine Nation ELC Emerging Technology Session Announcement

The Future of the Workforce - The decisions to apply, the application, and the maintenance of solutions using emerging technologies will require reliance on a workforce that is constantly evolving, which is often referred to as the GIG workforce. To monitor the gig workforce marketplace requires developing an agile means for vetting and to onboard and offboard subject matter experts as needed. The market analysis will be complex and beyond a human with a spreadsheet to maintain. It will require the compute power that artificial intelligence methodologies bring. CFO council workgroup on financial management. How can we bring technologies into government much more quickly?

Imagine Nation ELC Mission Modernization Session Announcement

Show Me the Money: CX in Financial Services - It is widely acknowledged that customer experience has become the key to success in financial services. This outcome of perfecting customer experience in financial services is a partnership between public and private sector organizations.

Imagine Nation ELC Plenary Session Announcement

We live in dynamic times, marked by the fast pace of technology change; rapidly shifting alliances; high expectations; and a degree of connectedness unimaginable just a generation ago. Despite the opportunities that dynamic change can provide, many of our government and social institutions and systems, including healthcare, justice, education, and services, lag behind in their ability to change and adapt. As the recent national experiences with the coronavirus, and the elevation of social injustice to the national consciousness has shown, our instructions and society as a whole struggle to keep pace. Coupled with an upcoming election and the likely changes that will produce, regardless of the outcome, it's easy to feel overwhelmed. But as leaders in government and industry, we all have networks and systems that we are part of and influence, and we have the power to drive change, in spite of systemic barriers. How can each of us lead change? How can we accelerate transformation and modernization of the organization and systems that we're part of? This session will address the practical actions we can take to execute strategy, drive transformation, and lead any form of large-scale change.

Imagine Nation ELC Emerging Technology Session Announcement

Trustworthy AI: A New Frontier in Privacy & Ethics - It is widely acknowledged that "trustworthiness" in AI/ML systems is critical to their development, validation and appropriate use in all parts of our society. That's easier said than done, of course, and there is some disagreement on what constitutes trustworthy or ethical AI and the use, research, development, and policies needed to define and achieve the goal of trustworthy AI systems. The set of properties needs to be extended beyond reliability, security, and privacy to include fairness, robustness, probabilistic accuracy under uncertainty, and other properties yet to be identified and defined. This session will bring government and industry executives together in an interactive discussion about building blocks for trustworthy AI systems and the associated methods, platforms/infrastructure/ecosystems, strategies, and tools to implement those building blocks when developing, researching, using, & testing AI use cases, AI technologies, and AI systems.

Imagine Nation ELC Mission Modernization Session Announcement

Workforce Re-Imagined - A Vision for Decentralized, Remote, Asynchronous Workforce. The Pandemic of 2020 has forced every organization to rethink remote work (work from home) policies. Organizations with processes, practices and tools for remote work prior to the pandemic had a much easier transition versus organization with traditional office work only options. The pandemic has taught every organization around the world that remote work is possible and can be quite productive if proper policies, practices, processes and tools are put in place. How will federal agencies have to plan for teleworking and how can this new normal benefit federal agencies and their workforce. This session can take several forms. Option 1. Pure panel of speakers from agencies with solid telework plans (like GSA) to agencies that have lessons learned and policy changes because of Covid (like BEP). Option 2. Panel of speakers talking through option 1 points but then breaking up the audience into working groups that come up with suggestions for decentralized, Remote, Asynchronous Workforce improvements.

Are You Smarter Than a City? Integrating the IoT to Build Smart Cities - Making our cities "smarter" means equipping them with the tools to address the pressing problems that their citizens care most about. From self-driving cars to precision medicine and microgrids, focused investment on innovation can achieve transformative impact on national priorities to meet the challenges facing the Nation and the world. Counterbalancing innovative solutions with cyber-physical risk mitigation is paramount as our country "connects" smart devices and systems - in diverse sectors such as transportation, energy, manufacturing, and healthcare - in fundamentally new ways.

Imagine Nation ELC Center Stage Session Announcement

How Open Data and Agile Can Transform Agencies: The Opportunity Project - In recent years, agile development has advanced in both industry and government as a method of designing software that builds functionality in rapid increments that involve both developers and users. Agile methodology is increasingly being used in non-IT efforts as well.

The Opportunity Project (TOP), a program run out of the U.S. Census Bureau at the U.S. Department of Commerce, has for several years served as a catalyst in adapting agile techniques to solve complex agency mission problems, through a process that brings together agencies, industry, and citizens. This process helps to empower people with technology, make government data more accessible and user-friendly, and facilitate cross-sector collaboration to build new digital solutions with open data. TOP works with Federal government agencies to identify significant challenges, and then facilitates partnerships among agency leaders, industry and non-profit innovators, and citizen users to collaborate as teams in developing innovative approaches to address those challenges.

Imagine Nation ELC Center Stage Session Announcement

How Emerging Tech can Drive Environmental Progress - The environmental imperative is forcing governments and companies to rethink their strategies and operations. Environmental challenges pose new strategic and operational risks for economies and companies. For example, natural disasters and dramatic shifts in weather patterns can disrupt supply chains or cause considerable damage to physical infrastructure and facilities. Accordingly, the environmental imperative is not merely another factor to consider but promises to dramatically alter the entire equation by which corporate success is defined and achieved.

Seizing the opportunities and addressing the challenges of environmental objectives will require a strategic approach based on a thorough understanding of the different types of environmental objectives and their respective impacts on public and private sector organizations. This strategic approach should be underpinned by data and insight to allow companies to identify and grasp relevant opportunities and manage relevant risks.

Imagine Nation ELC Emerging Technology Session Announcement

The Road Forward: Intersection of Emerging Technology and Procurement - Agencies are implementing innovative acquisition approaches to gain speed, agility, efficiency and expertise from non-traditional federal contracting companies for IT procurements, projects and programs. Government organizations that have successfully integrated emerging technologies to achieve mission impact at scale share one common primary trait: they understand that people and processes are equally important in driving technological transformation. Having a vision for what needs to be accomplished, aligning culture to allow the organization to move quickly and take advantage of those opportunities, and providing adequate training to allow the workforce to implement solutions while also identifying additional opportunities are all critical to success.
