Powering Innovation With Analytics

Data is everywhere. When data meets analytics, public service aspirations become reality. You can identify and contain health epidemics. Stop fraud, waste and abuse. And make real-time decisions to keep the public safe. Analytics empowers insight and innovation. And innovation advances humankind.

Join government leaders at the Newseum to discuss a modern, innovative approach to government that bridges technology and public policy – creating possibilities that transform our daily experiences. Forum conversations will explore using analytics strategically for better policymaking, effective legislation, targeted programs and services, and good use of taxpayer dollars.

Panel presentations will cover critical topics, including opioid epidemic and health surveillance, fraud and financial crimes, infrastructure, public safety and others. A technology showcase will be available throughout the day for attendees to ask questions and explore the latest advancements.
